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 have enabled us to secure the tenure of our Artistic Director for 2020. However, there are many more operational and artistic costs that must be met.
SPECIAL COVID-19 APPEAL
The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated the Australian arts industry with all events cancelled or put on hold.
River City Voices has also been impacted.
We are working hard to ensure that our staff remain employed, our singers keep singing and
our audiences remain connected throughout this uncertain period.
Looking to the future, RCV has devised a
Post Pandemic Prescription
Can you help us fill it?
We understand that everyone has been impacted by this pandemic in a myriad of ways but if you can support us now or later in the year, you will help ensure that River City Voices returns stronger and better than ever!
Please contact RCV's Development Manager, Liz Wilson firstname.lastname@example.org
