In response to the growing housing crisis in the Northern Rivers and a need to channel funding where it is needed most, the Reality Check campaign in association with the Northern Rivers Community Foundation (NRCF), is hosting Art Aid, an online art auction to raise funds to help the most vulnerable members in the community at this time.

Art Aid brings together a group of artists who have kindly donated their works of art to raise much-needed funds to help alleviate this crisis.

All proceeds go to the Housing and Homelessness stream of the NRCF 2021 Community Grants Round.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of Bundjalung Country where we work, across the region of the Northern Rivers, and pay respect to their Elders, past present and emerging.
