Help us save the National Cartoon Gallery in Coffs Harbour

Donation protected
We need your help to save the National Cartoon Gallery in Coffs Harbour.

Opened in 1996, it remains the only gallery dedicated to the art of cartoons in Australia and one of only very few in the world. It is a truly unique cultural institution and a fun tourist attraction.

The onslaught of Covid greatly impacted the Cartoon Gallery’s ability to operate and our financial outlook was grim. Seeing this coming, the Gallery’s staff worked very hard on plans to broaden the Gallery’s appeal and generate increased revenue.

We are now in a position to implement our strategy, however we desperately need more working capital to kick things off. We hope you can help.

The National Cartoon Gallery houses the largest collection of cartoon art in Australia, with more than 25,000 drawings, caricatures, comic strips and political cartoons, which tell an irreplaceable cultural and political history of our nation.

The Gallery’s closure would leave this invaluable cartoon collection without a home and we would lose - forever - a vital part of the cultural fabric of our nation.

We are asking the people of Coffs Harbour City and the wider Australian community to show your support and help us raise the money we need to keep the Gallery alive.

Here are some more reasons why the NCG is important to our city and our nation.

· The Gallery incorporates a restored WWII Bunker – one of the few heritage buildings in our city.

· The NCG Board has gifted Coffs Harbour a spectacular $3m gallery building, largely funded by the NSW State Government. A very valuable asset.

· The NCG is a major tourist and cultural attraction and a dynamic asset for the tourism industry.

· Over the years it has offered residents and tourists unique access to a variety of great exhibitions, many featuring many of Australia’s leading cartoonists. This is a one-of-a-kind experience that NO OTHER regional centre can offer.

· The NCG is a unique venue for both community and business events on the Coffs Coast.

· It provides education, entertainment, interactivity and practical drawing workshops for younger people.

· It stands for the values of our Australian nation, including freedom of expression, creativity, speech, respect, community, fairness and equal opportunity.

National Cartoon Gallery is a precious resource. Help us in our fight to keep the doors open. Everyone who donates to this campaign will be sent a small token of appreciation.
