Our Supporters

RAA Patrons: Dr Andrew Forrest AO & Dr Nicola Forrest AO

Andrew and Nicola Forrest are philanthropic leaders and strong community and arts supporters. They believe a collaborative approach encompassing the arts, education and health is essential to build sustainable empowerment in individuals and communities.  They are passionate about the Kimberley’s rock art and support RAA’s goals to research and protect it.

The Rock Art Australia Minderoo Chair in Archaeological Science at The University of Melbourne has been made possible thanks to the Minderoo Foundation through patrons Andrew and Nicola Forrest, as well as donations from Rock Art Australia, Allan Myers AC QC, and a contribution from the University.

Founding Supporter: The Ian Potter Foundation

The Ian Potter Foundation first funded RAA in 2007 with the Kimberley Region Human and Environmental History Program. Their support in 2013 helped us establish the perpetual Chair in Rock Art at The University of Western Australia. Their support of RAA’s rock art dating research is recognised through the Rock Art Australia Fellowship in Rock Art Dating.

The Rock Art Australia Ian Potter Chair in Rock Art at University of Western Australia has been made possible thanks to The Ian Potter Foundation, University of Western Australia, INPEX and Rock Art Australia.
