Where does my donation go?

Donations of all sizes will have an impact across the following areas:

Artistic Excellence

We present the world’s great jazz legends and modern masters direct to local audiences. We champion collaboration, bringing together the biggest names in international jazz alongside leading and emerging Australian artists.

New Work

We commission Australian artists to develop and present new work at the Festival, providing a context for them to take risks, explore and expand the artform, and build their national and international profile.

Sector & Artist Development

We deliver a series of programs and initiatives dedicated to supporting artists and industry at all levels, including our Gender Equity Initiative, our First Nations Artist in Residence program, and new sector-wide initiative soon to be announced.

Community Programs

We present over a third of our annual program for free or at low-cost to reduce barriers to access and inclusion, ensuring all people can experience jazz and improvised music.
