Philanthropy is key to everything we do and supports our mission to provide public performance opportunities with mentors for aspiring young performers and encourage the pursuit of excellence as they explore their creative goals.

Regional Engagement Fund

Sydney Eisteddfod is an amazing opportunity for like-minded young people to come together, discover new skills, make new friends and have an experience that will be remembered for a lifetime.

Our vision is young aspiring performers from the regions will have equal opportunity to perform on the Sydney Opera House stage or at Sydney Town Hall and have access to the mentorship from professional adjudicators, prizes and the life changing scholarships. We also want the regions to have a voice and regional artists to share their stories through performance with Sydney audiences.

We know many regional areas in NSW at the moment are doing it tough after Covid, floods and fire.

A donation to the Regional Engagement Fund will support young artists participate in the Sydney Eisteddfod from the first online application to subsidised travel and accommodation in Sydney.

$ 50 – covers an entry fee for one young artist

$100 – covers an entry fee for a small troupe

$200 – covers an entry fee for a group

$500 – subsidises 3 nights’ accommodation

$1000 – provides a travel scholarship to a regional group
