Partner with us on our Festival journey!

We're a not-for-profit charitable organisation that is deeply embedded in our local community while reaching out to the furthest corners of the globe. 

Every donation makes a difference and directly supports our mission to enrich life through art in WA.

How you can support us

Only around 20% of our annual operating costs are covered by ticket sales, so our philanthropic partnerships have become a vital income stream for us to continue to deliver world-class artistic experiences for our community. Donors who give $500 and above per annum are gratefully acknowledged on our website and in printed publications, unless anonymity is requested. They also receive regular Festival updates and get invited to exclusive Festival events where they can meet amazing artists and mingle with like-minded arts lovers! We invite you to partner with us on this exciting journey and join the Festival Family! Every donation counts and is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.
