Ensuring sustainability is a fundamental priority of any arts organisation, and as a brand new organisation,
it's not surprising that this is a key goal for River City Voices.
Through our 2019 Plus1 fundraising campaign "Back River City Voices $ for $"
we received matched funding from Creative Partnerships Australia and public donations that enabled us to secure the tenure of our Artistic Director for 2020.
This support was priceless as 2020 turned out to be a very challenging year
and we face the same hurdles in 2021, navigating the ever changing COVID restrictions,
with singing particularly hard hit.
RCV is planning to re-launch with an outdoor performance in December this year
and a fabulous season of public programs for 2022 but we need your help!
