About Our Auction
The auction of Daniel McDonald’s work Keeping is to raise awareness of and funds for Indigenous Australians living with a disability, particularly if they also identify as LGBT. The painting measures 1980mm by 1980mm.
"We are a long way behind the rest of the Aboriginal community in terms of access and inclusion in society. My aim is to showcase what we are capable of and to inspire others to start to close that gap.”
Proceeds will go to Drummond Street Services queerspace and Black Rainbow.
