Small acts make a big difference.
Thanks to the overwhelming generosity from over 1000 audience members and others in the community donating the value of their ticket refunds or other amounts, Melbourne Recital Centre’s Performer Support Fund raised over $200,000 during the challenges of 2020.
Donations provided crucial financial assistance to the community of local artists whose performances were directly affected by the closure period, created employment opportunities for artists during lockdown by enabling us to take some of the Centre’s programs online, and enabled the continued programming and support of local musicians in 2021.
While we operate at reduced capacity in 2021, please continue to help us nurture our vibrant community of local artists and ensure Victoria’s vibrant musical ecosystem is secured and will thrive once again.
Consider donating to the Centre’s 2021 Local Artist Appeal to support the artists who call the Centre ‘home’. Your support for the Centre’s Local Artist Appeal will see every dollar passed directly to local artists. Learn more here.
