Adelaide Fesrtival Centre Trust Foundation...The Art of Giving
Your donation will support a range of initiatives, including activities that don’t necessarily make money for AFCT Foundation. It is important to our long term viability, developing and maintaining Australian artistic talent.
The revenue we generate through ticket sales is reinvested in our main stage season. But there are a lot more activities that go on behind the scenes that many people do not know about that need philanthropic support. These activities include;
WELCOMING CHILDREN AND THEIR FAMILIES
Something on Saturdays Foundation Corner Art Workshops
An important part of our audience development program is offering free and engaging workshops for children at Something on Saturdays Foundation Kids Corner for children aged three -10 years from May to September every year. These free workshops provide a different art activity each week, linked to the performance. They encourage creativity and are an important investment in the audiences of today and the future. Donate now.
Foundation Funded Family Event at the Theatre
To ensure all families can access performances at Adelaide Festival Centre, the Foundation regularly hosts a special family performance and a pre-show party for groups that would otherwise find it difficult to attend a show at the Festival Centre. Past groups that have attended a performance and party for free include Grandparents for Grandchildren Inc, New Arrivals program, and Families SA. Donate now.
CHANGING YOUNG PEOPLE'S LIVES THROUGH THE ARTS
