About Transplant Australia 

Transplant Australia is a national charity representing transplant recipients, donor families, living donors and all those touched by organ and tissue donation and transplantation. A primary focus of the organisation is to raise awareness of the need to increase organ donor rates in Australia. Transplant Australia is responsible for staging the Australian Transplant Games as well as looking after the interests of all its members through advocacy, raising awareness and support.

 About the World Transplant Games

The World Transplant Games, hosted by Transplant Australia and sanctioned by the World Transplant Games Federation, will be held in Perth, Western Australia, in April 2023. The Australian Government through the Commonwealth Department of Health and the Organ & Tissue Authority are major partners of the Games.

AIM of the Art of Giving Exhibition

To raise awareness of organ and tissue donation and to raise funds for West Australian families to attend the World Transplant Games in 2023.

We encourage everyone to enter artworks– you don’t have to be a professional or expert artist. We are seeking artwork from children and adults, recipients and supporters and we encourage a variety of artworks – oils and acrylics, watercolours, pencil and crayon, collage, etchings, screen prints, lino and woodcuts, tapestries, appliqué, inlaid woodwork, etc.

Please circulate this information to anyone who you think would be interested.

As always we hope to inspire Australians to join the Organ Donor Register.
