We cooperate as an association to advance the practice of sculpture and the reputation and appreciation of sculpture and sculptors in the community. This is regardless of whether or not we make a living from sculpture and regardless of our preferred style or medium. To this end we support artists’ moral rights, we advocate a professional attitude to the production and presentation of work and encourage the artistic and intellectual stimulation of interaction amongst artists of all persuasions.

Abbotsford Convent is celebrating its 5th Birthday - Rough Diamond :: Convent Cornucopia 2009 is the Annual Gala Fundraising Event produced by the Abbotsford Convent Foundation (ACF) – a not-for-profit organisation responsible for the development of a community-owned arts, culture and learning precinct. Convent Cornucopia is held every year on 24 April (Anzac Eve) – the date that ‘the keys’ to the Convent were handed over to the ACF following a remarkable seven year battle to save the Abbotsford Convent site from inappropriate development.

This year, The Abbotsford Convent is celebrating her 5th birthday as a community-owned cultural asset. A rare gem, The Abbotsford Convent is a grand old dame albeit tarnished with age and worn by time. She has a dazzling future as a beacon of diverse cultural activity – community life at its palpable, beautiful best. Defined by shared cultural nurturing and learning of changing moods and big personalities, she is a rough diamond.

Convent Cornucopia 2009 is the unique Abbotsford Convent experience – a rare opportunity to see her all lit up and dressed up … with the promise of a good time. In contrast to her controversial and stoic past, Convent Cornucopia 2009 offers a revelatory (and possibly more than a little risqué) opportunity to mingle amongst the shared memories with old (and new) friends.
