6. What are the guidelines for Hand in Hand 2019?


We are happy to accept donations of paintings (in any medium), photographs, sculpture, textiles, jewellery and ceramics. We request the following;

  • Each artwork is clearly marked with the name of artist and the title of the piece
  • Your work is professionally presented and ready for hanging/display


  • Hand in Hand event organisers will exercise care at all times but will accept no liability or responsibility for loss or damage of the pieces while held by the event organisers or in transit.
  • Hand in Hand event organisers may use an image of your donated piece to promote the exhibition on the Hand in Hand website and social media. Images of your piece may also appear in other promotions for this event.
  • In 2019, Hand in Hand will be conducted over a five day period (from 20 March to 24 March). Selected artworks will be displayed at Project Contemporary Artspace, Wollongong. Hand in Hand event organisers reserve the right to decide on where your artwork will be displayed.
  • SCARF often receives more artworks than we have space available for display. Event organisers and curators will endeavour to display all donated artworks during the course of the exhibition. Our practice is to replace sold works with new pieces throughout the exhibition.
  • Although all attempts will be made to include all donated artworks in the Hand in Hand exhibition, the event organisers reserve the right not to accept works deemed inappropriate.
  • Each year, Hand in Hand sells more than 90% of donated works. We ask that artists nominate an appropriate price/price range for the work on the registration form.
  • As a charity art exhibition, Hand in Hand organisers reserve the right to increase the the price above the recommended price.
  • Proceeds from sale of artworks are donated to SCARF.
  • All unsold artworks that remain uncollected after a period of seven (7) days will become the property of SCARF and will be sold or auctioned at a later date, with proceeds going to SCARF.
  • We accept a maximum of 3 artworks per donor.
