Gifted was launched in November 2020 with a very generous gift by the De Deyne Family. Ferre De Deyne is a SCAF Board Director, Sunshine Coast businessman, art collector and philanthropist.
The Gifted Patrons Group links local ‘gifted’ artists with a gift from a donor. Patrons nominate the art medium or practice that inspires them to invest $1000 into a recipient’s creative journey.
Here on the Sunshine Coast we are ‘gifted’ by the fabulous environment, a caring community and, most importantly, with gifted artists and creatives, who are talented, innovative, entrepreneurial and engaging. The program supports artists across the variety of disciplines, in keeping with the Foundation’s purpose.
