Support the Arts this EOFY content

Your gift supports transformative arts experiences

Audiences of all ages can be transformed through the arts - whether it's a performance in the Adelaide Festival, a workshop with our travelling artists or an inspiring session (or several!) at Adelaide Writers' Week.

We need your help to continue creating accessible arts experiences through our End of Financial Year Campaign. 

In 2022, we're seeking support across two significant programs - Festival Connect and Adelaide Writers' Week. By making a donation to Festival Connect, you will help to support young people from disadvantaged schools to access Adelaide Festival shows and experiences (more info>>). A gift to Adelaide Writers' Week will support our beloved outdoor literary festival and help to keep it free (more info>>).

All donations of $2 or more are tax-deductible. Thank you for your generosity.

Festival Connect

We believe it is crucial to provide young people with opportunities to experience and learn through the arts. While the Festival offers heavily subsidised school price tickets for students, the additional costs associated with excursions can be prohibitive.

Festival Connect addresses this problem by providing funds directly to Category 1-4 Schools – those schools that serve the most socio-economically disadvantaged communities – to cover the cost of their transport to the Festival. For remote or regional schools, the fund can also be accessed to subsidise accommodation costs.

With bus hire alone costing $900 from the Adelaide suburbs and more from regional South Australia, Festival Connect is an important initiative for ensuring access to the arts for underprivileged students. This year, over 400 students were able to benefit from free transport to the Festival, thanks to our audience’s philanthropic support of Festival Connect.

Access to the arts should never be an unattainable privilege. Please consider making a donation to support future learning and access to the arts for young people in South Australia.

Adelaide Writers' Week

Adelaide Writers’ Week is regarded as one of the world’s great literary festivals, providing a platform for Australian and international authors and passionate readers of all ages to come together. It attracts tens of thousands each year and is livestreamed to community centres, libraries, aged care homes and schools across South Australia.

We are committed to maintaining Writers’ Week as the much loved and accessible event that it is. But with ever tightening budgets and rising costs, and a desire for continual improvement, we need your help.

With only limited direct funding and modest contributions from book sales and philanthropy, the majority of Adelaide Writers’ Week's $1.2 million budget is covered by Adelaide Festival each year. 

Through your generosity, we can continue to deliver an event of the highest calibre which offers an exciting program, caters for all ages and is absolutely free!
