Rising to the Challenge

Rising to the Challenge
with matched funding from Creative Partnerships Australia

A 2017 Campaign to support Tura New Music’s Regional Program was launched on Wednesday 1st November by Western Australia’s Chief Justice Wayne Martin AC at a simultaneous event in Melbourne and Perth. The transcontinental energy and enthusiasm generated in both Melbourne and Perth was incredibly moving to be sure and a wonderful endorsement of what Tura does in regional and remote Australia.

Rising to the Challenge funds contributed to:

  • Tura’s annual touring program that features unique artistic collaborations between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists
  • An artist-in-residence program with artists embedded in communities for 2-3 weeks at a time

We are likewise delighted with the success of the events raising a total of $26,000 when the target was $20,000 to trigger our Creative Partnerships Australia Pus1 matched funding of a further $20,000. All in one night!
