It is quite a challenge to sort through Media releases, government websites and search engines to gather information related to the topic of Corporate Sponsorship of the Visual Arts within NSW.
There are some insightful government research articles that I have included on this URLography that present us with statistics and figures relating to the topic, it is also easy to find Government websites offering grants and scholarships to struggling and emerging artists alike.
As my topic of interest revolves around the notion of the governments financial resources favouring regional galleries over larger institutions, and the differing types of corporate sponsorship that regional and institutional galleries attract, the most helpful and resourceful websites were the Art Gallery of New South Wales website and Hazlehurst Regional Art Gallery's website.
