logoThe Architecture Foundation takes great pleasure in inviting you to attend the 2013 Architecture Foundation award dinner at the Link Gallery, Newcastle Museum, Wharf Road and Workshop Way, Honeysuckle on Friday 20 September 2013, from 6.30 pm.

This year we have a very special guest speaker: Grahame Bond, aka Aunty Jack, Kev Kavanagh, Flash Nick from Jindivick. Grahame is an architecture graduate from Sydney, instigator of the Sydney University architecture reviews, a comedian who changed the face of Australian television comedy, a writer and an actor.

Grahame Bond is one of Australia’s most prolific, influential and best-loved personalities. Having entertained and informed Australians for over thirty years, Grahame says he’s been “trapped in the A’s” – art, architecture, acting, advertising, archaeology and of course, Aunty Jack.’

The 13th annual dinner welcomes back the 2012 Parker Fellowship recipient Matthew Kelly from his time urban globetrotting, as well as the recipient of the 2012 Colin Madigan Commendation, Hannah Cheetham, from her time at the Julian Ashton Art School. We will also announce the 2013 award recipients.

The major 2013 fundraiser raffle will be an original framed watercolour by Charles Martin and the 2013 annual dinner raffle is also a watercolour by Charles Martin. Tickets are available from any committee member and from the Newcastle Divisional office of the AIA. This year, one ticket will cover both the major raffle and the 2013 annual dinner raffle, however, the 2013 dinner prize will be drawn on the night and only be available to the 2013 annual dinner attendees.

If you would like to attend the annual dinner, please complete our 2013 dinner registration form and email it back to us. We would be grateful if you could respond by Wednesday 14 August 2013 so that we can confirm final numbers for catering. If you are unable to attend but would like to make a tax deductible donation towards our scholarship fund, please use the form to register your donation.

I look forward to catching up with you at our dinner.

Best wishes,

Robert Donaldson
Chair of the Trustee and Hon Treasurer
