The Blue Room Theatre’s artistic program ‘Giving Circle’ was established in 2020 as a response to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on independent theatre makers in Western Australia.
These makers continue to be vulnerable to lockdowns and lost opportunities, and the fact they work independently means they often miss out government support.
Funds raised annually by our Giving Circle provide increased financial and resource support directly to local artists for our annual season of performances. The funding builds viable and sustainable platforms, pathways and presenting opportunities for emerging and established artists, now and into the (hopefully) COVID-free future. Our generous Giving Circle members pledge to contribute a minimum of $1,000/year for three years. Throughout the year, The Blue Room Theatre hosts exclusive events and get togethers for Giving Circle members to celebrate local independent theatre, including season sneak peeks.
In 2020, our inaugural 19 Giving Circle members collectively gave $33,500 to the 2021 Annual Season.
