Expand access, empower communities; help everyone experience the joy of the Sydney Opera House

The Opera House isn’t just a venue; it’s a ticket to boundless imagination, new worlds, and perspectives. We believe everyone in our community should have the chance to experience our international icon.

This festive season we are asking for your help to expand our Community Engagement Program. This program collaborates with disadvantaged, refugee and migrant communities, to ensure that the people on our stages and in our audiences reflects the diverse world around us. 

In the past 18 months we have welcomed close to 900 community members to the House through subsidised and free tickets to performances, tours, workshops and talks. Nearly 80% of them were visiting the House for the first time. 

This is important work. In research recently completed by Deloitte, 71% of people agreed that visiting the Opera House made them feel more connected to their companions and the community. Join us and help create a more inclusive and socially cohesive society.

With your support we can welcome more people to the Opera House, open the stage door to diverse artists and expose more people to the joy of the arts. By ensuring everyone has access, regardless of their background, we can break down barriers, foster inclusivity, and forge meaningful connections within our community.
