Freecycle for Artists & Arts Orgs: Stuff Bank image

The Australian Business Arts Foundation (AbaF), together with arts@work, have recently launched a new initiative where artists and arts organisations can apply for free stuff that has been donated by commercial businesses.

Artists can check the arts@work website to see stuff that is available, and apply to receive it. If their application is successful they arrange collection directly with the prior owners.

The sort of stuff you might be able to get for free includes whiteboards, office furniture, computers, hanging systems etc.

Stuff Bank has rolled out in Tasmania, and other states in Australia are to follow.
