THANK YOU FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE!!
Supporting the arts in this time of crisis
This Year, We Need U More than Ever
As we have had to make the decision this year to cancel the 2020 Sydney Eisteddfod Festival, at this time, we are reliant more than ever on the generosity of our amazing community to keep us afloat.
With the the loss of our income streams, we are facing the most challenging time in our 86-year history.
This improvement is imperative as our current website build will expire, leaving us without the means to function as an organisation and take income.
To continue to run Sydney Eisteddfod, we need to be able to take entries, sell tickets, receive donations, and importantly, engage with our community, ALL of which is done through our website.
If you are able to, please consider making a donation to help us reach our goal. Your much needed support will help us survive so we can continue to work towards coming back bigger and better than ever in 2021!
You generous support will allow us to continue to champion and celebrate our young performing artists for generations to come.
WHAT ARE WE DOING RIGHT NOW TO STAY CONNECTED?
You get to be happy in the knowledge you are directly helping Australian young people pursue their passions.
All donations to Sydney Eisteddfod $2.00 and above are tax deductible and help to provide opportunities for performers of all ages and levels, to showcase their talents.
Your donation goes towards providing prize monies to inspire and encourage our winners across dance, singing, drama and music.
Senior Singer of the Year Award Winner for 2019, Siobhan Lynch says,
"The prize money I was so fortunate to have been awarded as winner of Senior Contemporary Singer of the Year, will allow me to continue my lessons and studies in the performing arts as well as enable me to attend performances of other artists to broaden my awareness and exposure to continue to grow and develop my personal skills and craft.
The Sydney Eisteddfod performance experience has provided me with the encouragement and confidence to continue on this exciting journey to see where it may take me in the future."
Send young performing artists to further their studies overseas.
Hyo Shimizu won 2019's Sydney Eisteddfod coveted Ballet Scholarship and is now using his scholarship money to fund his studies in Mannheim, Germany.
You're ensuring we have the best adjudicators to uphold the standard that people expect from Sydney Eisteddfod
Opera Scholarship adjudicator and distinguished opera singer Cheryl Barker AO said in a recent interview,
“It is so important that Sydney Eisteddfod continues to get the support of the sponsors because without that, a lot of these incredible voices will never get to be heard or have the opportunity to have a career.”
WE continue to produce the highest quality events,
BECAUSE YOU KEEP US GOING
Putting on the highest quality events, at the best venues across Sydney, costs money. Without the love of our supporters we’d be out on the streets. SE do not receive any funding from the government to help pay our bills. Without your support, there is no Sydney Eisteddfod.
You are helping provide schools with the funds to further their performing arts programs.
With long standing partnerships such as with Optimum Percussion, Sydney Eisteddfod is proud to be able to offer our participating schools the means to purchase the instruments they need to continue to grow their musical programs.
Be a part of a Child's development
Born profoundly deaf, brothers Henry and Rupert Hughes have broken through stereotypes and pushed the barrier of sound after receiving cochlear implants as young boys.
Encouraged to take speech lessons as a way to gain confidence and improve dictation, it was not long before Rupert and Henry impressed their teacher with their newfound skills and were urged to enter Sydney Eisteddfod.
Henry Says, “I have gained my speech and I have gained my confidence through Sydney Eisteddfod and with that I can do anything!”
