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.
The Alcorso Foundation Board and members wish you and your families a safe, peace filled Christmas and holiday season.
Thank you for your ongoing support in providing opportunities for Tasmanian individuals to make a positive difference in our communities.
We are pleased to be continuing our successes with program partners Arts Tasmania, The Bookend Trust, Department of Education, University of Tasmania, and Wine Tasmania throughout 2015 and extend our sincere thank you to Foundation Partners, Liminal Graphics, Focal Printing, MONA, and Fuji Xerox Tasmania.
