Support Australia’s participation at the Biennale
The Australian Exhibition at the Venice Architecture Biennale is a major project of the Australian Institute of Architects (Institute). The Venice International Architecture Biennale is arguably the most important event on the International contemporary architecture calendar. Thousands of the world’s most influential architects, designers, urban planners, developers and critics visit the Biennale, resulting in considerable discussion and commentary in the architectural press and general media.
Currently the Australian Government does not financially contribute to Australia’s representation at the Architecture Biennale, for this reason the Institute relies heavily on the support of the Australian Design & Construction community.
There are a range of contribution opportunities which are available through:
- Network Venice Program
- Tax deductible donations
The Institute provides a unique opportunity for companies to align their brand with an initiative that evokes a sense of pride among the Australian and international architecture community. The prestige of the event gives unparalleled access to sponsors who wish to reach Australia’s top firms, and connect with key decision makers, leading designers and emerging talent. Read more...

There are a range of benefits including access to Vernissage passes, networking events and exclusive participation in Venice. Read more...
