Help us share the future...

Remember Saturday 14th March 2020?

This is a photo of the Kultur-All Makaan as it stood on that day, the first weekend of shutdowns and social distancing measures in Victoria. It was a crazy set of circumstances to navigate, but we managed to deliver two of four days of programming before our Makaan's moratorium and for all this to pass.


We will return to work with the Hazara, South Sudanese and Karen communities of Bendigo and beyond once we can properly meet again and plan for the next exciting future for the Kultur-All Makaan.

Support the development of new approaches to art making and engaging public's
through one of regional Australia's most noted experimental organisations.

Based in our hometown Castlemaine on Dja Dja Wurrung Country, Punctum collaborates through large commissions, small projects, year long programs and our own residency program Seedpod.

We test ideas, undertake experiments, develop new work and propositions whilst taking risks in a collegiate environment.

We also like the fact that these experiments happen outside of city-based confines and institutions, challenging notions of the contemporary and regionality.

We value small and large donations in equal measure as every donation makes a difference to our programs.

For over 14 years Punctum has relied on the generosity of our audiences, volunteers, board members, staff and donors.

By donating to Punctum you are contributing to Punctum's dedication to providing a leading regional space for experimental and contemporary art making that helps us share the future.

Every donation directly influences how together we boost the future for regional artists and audiences alike.

Our 2020 program includes:

Our Seedpod residency program "Weird Sanctuaries"

The Kultur-Al Makaan's (second presentation stage)

Punctum's Public Cooling House (Summer re-presentations)
