The Alcorso Foundation was established in 2001 to honor the late Claudio Alcorso.
Claudio is remembered for his extraordinary vision and his significant contribution to the economic, artistic and cultural development in Tasmania.
The Foundation continues Claudio and Lesley Alcorso’s legacy by enabling individuals and organisations to make a positive difference to the social and cultural fabric of Tasmania through its three programs areas: Arts, Environment and Social Justice.
On Sunday 16 November the Alcorso Foundation will once again hold its very popular Family Garden Day where some of the most beautiful and interesting private gardens in Tasmania's Derwent Valley will be made available for the public to visit. We invite you and your family to bring a picnic and visit a selection of beautiful gardens.
