As a not-for-profit organisation, RISING relies on support from donors, public partners and corporate organisations to help fund ambitious art, reach new audiences and tell our story.
With their support, we can offer free experiences, keep our ticket prices accessible, and have a real impact on artists, audiences and our city.
Funding makes it possible for us to amplify voices in our community. We do this by commissioning thoughtful and challenging work, and creating pathways and infrastructure for artists to scale up their practice and mount work at a major festival. Before entering into a funding relationship, we evaluate it based on its alignment with our values. Any gifts received must also align with RISING’s Fundraising Policy, which you can read here.
We also assess corporate partnerships – including partners’ values, activities, products and purposes – to ensure they’re consistent with the values and goals of RISING.
