Your gift at work
You can transform a young disadvantaged student’s life, opening up a world of possibilities beyond the classroom and daily life, through helping them to experience the performing arts.
These students are young members of our community who live with social and financial disadvantage and come from a variety of backgrounds including from Aboriginal, non-English speaking, migrant, and refugee families.
For most of these children, it is the first time they have visited the Opera House.
For many, it is the first time they have experienced a theatre performance.
Your gift of just $28 makes a difference
You can help with just $28, which is the cost for each of these disadvantaged students to experience an educational performance at the Opera House.
Over 2,000 disadvantaged students have an Opera House experience, thanks to donors like you. That’s over $50,000 each year to meet current demand.
And demand on our donor-funded education access program is increasing every year, which means students are starting to miss out.
Your gift can change a life
Your gift creates an invaluable experience for these young students. Our program is linked to the school curriculum and is connected to in-class activities before and after the students’ Opera House visit, so the experience has lasting impact.
With your support, these young students from disadvantaged schools can have that transformative experience of the performing arts that we often take for granted.
We can’t do it without you
The Opera House is a not-for-profit organisation. We can only help these children through your generosity. Please make your gift today and help us open the Opera House to as many young people in our community as possible.
Every gift makes a difference.
