Matt Clark Travelling Scholarship (2014 )

Matt Clark, a young artist and Perc Tucker Regional Gallery Trainee, had booked his first trip to the Brisbane galleries and was saving for the 2011 Venice Biennale, when he tragically died in October 2009. To remember him, the Matt Clark Travelling Scholarship (MCTS) was established with donations given by the Townsville arts and broader community. In keeping with Matt’s desire to travel and broaden his arts experiences, the scholarship has been set up to support young Townsville- based visual artists to travel to art events and exhibitions outside of their region. Most schools now have annual arts exhibitions. The scholarship is an amount of $1 000 and is awarded annually. Through Wingate’s sponsorship, the Matt Clark charity (MCTS) has the opportunity to hold annual art-exhibition which will further widen their target audience to other corporations.

“We are thrilled to announce that Wingate have come on board as the first ‘A-List Partner’, contributing $5000 and also committing to underwrite the Scholarship’s annual $1000 figure until such a time as the $100,000 goal is reached.”
