Now, more than ever before, we need creativity, connection, and inspiration. It is clear that over the coming months, we will need to overcome enormous challenges to keep Canberra the vibrant place we love to live in.
You can help.
We are asking you to support Canberra region artists to keep making and creating, through an ongoing monthly or one-off donation. Please give generously. 100% of funds received by Belco Arts will go towards paying artists from the Canberra region to deliver new public programs, delivered online, free of charge to the whole community.
This will include visual and performing arts such as online workshops, exhibitions, developments and performances. These programs will continue to connect brilliant local artists with the Canberra community, and beyond. We will do everything we can to continue to fuel a love of and engagement in the arts.
Australian artists have reported over $300 million in lost income, and this is rising daily as the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic result in the greatest challenge ever to face the creative arts. Your support will sustain a creative community, and help Canberra region artists to recover during a time of incredible uncertainty. Through your donation you are supporting sustainable careers and fair pay for artists, the development of new work, and engagement with community to help share a life-long love of the arts. Together, we will go the distance.
Your donation is fully tax deductible. Please pledge what you can, and let others know about how they can help.
