Preserving and sharing our cultural heritage
From Kylie Minogue’s iconic costumes to archives from The Australian Ballet, your donations are helping build a priceless performing-arts collection. With support from people like you, we’ve been able restore and protect over 680,000 items of our cultural history.
Give today and you’ll help grow the collection and keep it safe for future generations. And because the collection belongs to all Australians, your gift will also help us share it with everyone through free and touring exhibitions.
