Perth International Arts Festival engages more local and international artists each year, collectively, than any other arts organisation in Western Australia and touches the lives of over 300,000 patrons each year. Ticket sales only cover 30% of what it takes to present our Festival and through individual financial support you can help us achieve our bold vision for the cultural life of Western Australia.

Funds received through the Festival Circle are directly invested in contemporary local and international art and all donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.

We will keep in regular contact with you around our programs and bring you closer to the performers, artists and our achievements.

Annual donations received through the Festival Circle will be directed towards two essential program areas:

Vital Stages. This program will enhance the opportunity for local artists to work and perform alongside world-renowned international artists or to conceive, develop and present new contemporary works. Your support will directly increase the capacity of our arts sector and encourage the export of Western Australian work, including Indigenous works and stories.

International Program. The core of the Festival provides our community with the opportunity to experience world-class performances by artists at the peak of their practice. Many of these events inspire our youth and live on in our memories and imaginations for years to come.
