2017 Giving Campaign


Current Progress: $23,420 of $17,000 Goal

Sustainability once again takes centre stage as we raise funds to invest in brand new LED lights for our theatre spaces.

The Blue Room Theatre is committed to decreasing our environmental impact and carbon output, with the goal of becoming Western Australia’s first carbon neutral theatre by 2020. Following our successful installation of solar panels in 2016, beginning to install LED lights is the next most effective way to reduce the environmental impact of our core business: making and presenting theatre. The LEDs will use less electricity than the current conventional lights, and they will generate less heat, meaning less air conditioning.

While $17,000 will allow us to begin the lighting upgrade, every dollar raised over this target will go towards increasing the scope of the upgrade, making even more of a difference to our environmental impact and the opportunities on offer for artists.

Lighting design underpins our experience of live theatre. It is vital for our designers and technicians to practise at the forefront of current technologies so they can develop skills, make great work, and build careers in the industry. An upgrade to LEDs from conventional lights will mean we will be providing facilities on a par with the industry and opening doors to sustainable careers.

Theatre reveals the poetic quality of light like few other artforms. Our lighting designers skilfully deploy both its ethereal and material qualities as they bring characters and scenes to life and highlight the intricate movement of bodies in space. Lighting can reveal the twists of shadow puppetry at play, the chaos of a confused mind, or the depths of a world you’ve never experienced.

The Blue Room Theatre champions the now, the next and the new and has been the creative hub of Western Australia’s independent theatre scene for 28 years, supporting the boldest minds and acting as a vital incubator for successful artists.

We urge you to help us continue to Green the Blue and give independent artists the best tools for the job. We appreciate any contribution you are able to make, and all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
