Developed by Menzies School of Health Research, Ochre is a charity art auction held in October 2008 to raise money for Indigenous child health research. Through the generous support of sponsors and donors the Ochre artworks have been purchased directly from community art centres therefore fostering Indigenous employment and ensuring that Ochre is supporting economic development in Indigenous communities.

“A high profile, gala event, Ochre will raise much needed awareness and support for ground-breaking research into Indigenous child health, through the auction of 14 exclusive works by Australia’s most sought after Indigenous artists.”

The 2008 Fundraiser will be held at Mossgreen Auctions, Melbourne Australia on Tuesday 14th October, 2008.
