Here is a little list on how you can help support the arts and cultural community to help #KeepTheArtsGoing.

  • Follow your arts and cultural organisations on social media to find out how you can help. ArtsHub has put together a list of organisations impacted with event cancellations - have a look and reach out >
  • Consider donating your cancelled ticket amount – you should be able to receive a tax receipt for future deductions.
  • Write words of encouragement, share cute animal memes or send heartfelt emojis to artists and creatives on social media.
  • Repost arts content across your social channels.
  • Reach out to people who work in the creative industries - ask if they are okay.
  • Engage with art online. Take a virtual tour, browse art collections online, sign up to a digital music program, stream a live performance, join a reading festival.
  • Enjoying art online? Make a taxable donation in lieu of a ticket price.
  • Stream music or buy music online from local artists. We recommend Spotify, Bandcamp and Soundcloud.
