Philanthropy and tertiary arts: The future for sustainable art education?
In recent years we have seen a growth in tertiary sector focus on attracting philanthropic support and witnessed the expansion of Advancement as part of the university management mission. This is mirrored by increased attention by creative and arts organisations in cultivating relationships with individual donors. These approaches have resulted in some substantial and generous gifts to tertiary arts.
What do such relationships bring to donor and donee? Does philanthropic generosity provide a sustainable pathway for the future of creative and tertiary arts? And if so, what are the crucial steps to achieving success? Are there any longer term concerns to such gifting?

Creative arts disciplines make up a significant component of the university staff and student population, yet we lack a vehicle to share common experiences and issues.
NiTRO provides a platform for creative artists practicing in academia to contribute to informed discussion about issues and activities relating to practice, research and teaching taking place within the university sector.
With details of events, conferences, research resources, and articles from guest contributors and creative artists working in DDCA member institutions, subscribing to NiTRO keeps you up to date with the what, why and when of university based creative arts.
Subscription is free and open to artists, educators, policymakers, and anyone interested in creative arts research and tertiary education.
