Support and Donate


RISING is a major cultural event for the Asia Pacific Region, centred on the idea that culture is not just amusement or entertainment for the few, but is an essential service for all.

We invite all to participate, to be represented or just be present.

Your support of RISING is essential to delivering the impact on the artists, audience and city we seek to achieve. As a RISING supporter, you are directly contributing to our ability to offer free experiences, keeping our ticket prices low and ensuring the festival is accessible to everyone.

We can't do this without your help.


Join a community whose passion, loyalty and commitment to the arts helps us create extraordinary experiences that energise our city, fulfill its artistic potential and introduce broad audiences to bold new work.

Find out more about our annual giving programs, RISING Constellations, and our Commissioning Circle, and join our inspiring supporters whose generosity makes everything you see in our festival possible.

To chat about how you can support, or to enquire about setting up a regular donation, please contact our philanthropy team at or on 03 9652 8626.
