The Alcorso Story

The Alcorso Foundation was established in 2001 to honour 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 continued 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 program areas: Arts, Environment and Social Justice.
