LIVE AT RISING
Thanks to everyone who got lost, went deep and shook loose with us this year. See you again in June 2023.

Our Supporters

Eva Besen AO (1928 - 2021)
RISING remembers Mrs Eva Besen AO, philanthropist and arts benefactor, who along with her husband Marc Besen AC, was instrumental in the establishment of Melbourne’s first international arts festival Spoleto Melbourne: Festival of The Three Worlds, the precursor to RISING.


RISING thanks our supporters, whose inspiring generosity makes everything you see in our festival possible.
