By making a tax-deductible donation to Melbourne International Arts Festival, you are playing a critical role in enabling Melbourne to be home to one of the world’s greatest international arts festivals.

Contributions, both large and small, directly enable the Festival to make a difference in three main areas:

The City
Melbourne proudly wears its crown as one of the great cultural cities, and the Festival is its jewel. We bring arts and culture to the forefront of the public imagination, allowing audiences to express their love for all things creative, while also showcasing this dynamic and everchanging metropolis to the world at large. The Festival is shaped by Melbourne, and in turn transforms the city itself.

Festival audiences always applaud the quality and diversity of our program, relishing the new and thrilling ways it enables them to engage with the city. The Festival creates extraordinary experiences that are not available elsewhere. It’s no surprise that so many people who fall in love with the Festival’s offerings go on to give back to it in return.

The artists who make our festival what it is are only able to do so through generous support, including through the Festival’s philanthropic channels. We provide mainstage opportunities to leading artists from home and abroad, and nurture the creative vision of cutting edge artists just beginning to take flight. Employment and professional development opportunities are made possible via commissions and masterclasses, and many artists programmed by the Festival are afforded access to audiences on a scale they have never seen before.
