Make a wish come true with a gift of the performing arts.

Not everyone is fortunate enough to be able to enjoy the performing arts. There are many Victorians who still miss out, due to social disadvantage, distance or other circumstances beyond their control.

The First Call Fund helps to close this gap, by directly supporting school and community groups to visit Arts Centre Melbourne, where they can see a live performance, or participate in a creative arts learning workshop.

Please donate to help make a wish come true

Experiencing the performing arts can ignite the imagination, cultivate curiosity, and foster the creativity and confidence needed to face the world, to understand it and perhaps to change it for the better.

If you share our belief that EVERYONE deserves the opportunity to engage with the arts in a meaningful way, then please join us by supporting the First Call Fund today.

It was so funny, loud, interesting and romantic. I really loved watching the play. It was the BEST PLAY EVER!!!!
