Become a member and get closer to the 2015 Festival
The Australian and New Zealand Festival is supported by individuals and corporations who understand the significant impact their donations can have on promoting and developing the work of Australian & New Zealand writers, artists and performers.
Members will enjoy exclusive access to the annual festival and are an integral part of building towards our year-round platform for Australian and New Zealand artists in Europe over the next three years. No other festival and associated programme exists quite like it. The Festival is a UK Registered Charity, so UK tax payer donations will be tax deductible and eligible for Gift Aid.
To become a Festival Friend or Guardian, please follow the “Join Now” link below. To discuss becoming a Patron or Benefactor with one of our dedicated team members, or for any other member-related queries, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be in touch as soon as possible.
We hope you are able to support the Festival, at any level. Thank you.
The Australia New Zealand Festival is supported by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, to support the promotion of Australian writers to international audiences.
We are also grateful to the national arts body for New Zealand, Creative New Zealand, for supporting the festival and helping us present the best of New Zealand writing.
