Arts for All Appeal

The performing arts reflect society and enrich our lives. They inspire us as individuals and help us build stronger, more connected communities.

Around the world, generous donors recognise that creativity, learning, wellbeing and community cohesion thrive in societies with a strong cultural and creative sector. Along with government and business, private individuals invest in keeping the arts strong, so that its many benefits continue to be delivered to society.

By supporting us you are ensuring a thriving arts community for all Victorians.

On our world-renowned stages, in communities across Victoria, online, via mobile and through digital and outreach programming, our connection to individuals, families and communities traverses generations, and transcends cultural and geographical divides.

Everyone is welcome, and we devise programs and projects to enable our visitors and audiences to experience the arts, both as spectator and creator. Our commitment to participation and education are central to what we do, enabling us to inspire a new generation of creatives and makers.

Arts Centre Melbourne would not be able to deliver such a broad and deep range of programs and performances without its active community of philanthropic supporters. With your support and involvement, Arts Centre Melbourne can continue to deliver remarkable experiences for all Victorians.
