COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme

The COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme is a 12 month, interest-free loan scheme to enable the purchase of contemporary Tasmanian art from participating Tasmanian galleries.

If you are an Australian resident, then you are eligible to apply for a loan under the COLLECT Art Purchase Scheme.
 
The scheme is the first of its kind in Australia and aims to support the Tasmanian visual arts sector by encouraging the export of Tasmanian artwork. 
 
The minimum amount you can borrow is $750 and the maximum is $7,875.
 
The minimum retail price for an artwork able to be purchased using a COLLECT loan is $400, so you will need to buy at least two $400 artworks to be eligible for a $750 loan.
 
The maximum retail price for an artwork able to be purchased using a COLLECT loan is $10,500, so to buy an artwork retailing above $7 875, you will need to pay a deposit equalling the balance. For example, if you purchase an artwork retailing at $10,500, you will need to pay a deposit of $2,625.
 
For more detailed information, visit www.collect-art.com.au or pick up a COLLECT brochure, which is available at Reception.
