Tickets on Us
Country Arts SA has been providing rewarding arts experiences for children and families, through music, dance, multimedia, drama, comedy, visual arts, literature, cinema and physical theatre for many years. We are committed to ensuring access to the arts for all South Australians, no matter where they live.
The ticket on us donor program aims to change the lives of disadvantaged children and families in regional South Australia by providing them with rewarding performing arts experiences they would otherwise miss out on.
Something so many of us take for granted, arts experiences of any kind are what enrich our lives culturally, through exposure to new ideas and new ways of life; socially through connecting with other likeminded people and creating a sense of community no matter where you live and creatively, through inspiring you to see the world differently. This is especially important for children, as arts experiences can help shape their outlook on the world.
Many low income regional South Australians are unable to attend theatre events due to financial hardship and will often miss out on experiencing professional theatre productions, despite Country Arts SA’s commitment to keeping prices as low as possible.
Donations big or small through the Ticket on Us program mean disadvantaged regional South Australians can have the same access to the arts as anyone else in their community.
At Country Arts SA, we work with school leaders, disability services and disadvantaged community groups to distribute tickets to appropriate productions wherever we can, ensuring that this opportunity is as far reaching as possible.
As little as $15 a month will give one child the opportunity to enjoy and learn through live performance every month of 2019.
“These kids have never seen a professional live performance. They saw firsthand what could be achieved through hard work, dedication and artistic talent and realised there were greater possibilities ahead. We were amazed by the new energy we saw after the performance. The kids were more committed and inspired to succeed. They saw new possibilities for their future. This would never have been possible without Country Arts SA. We are so grateful for your support,” said Danyon De Buell, Company Manager, Riverland Youth Theatre.
