Give Tasmanian children access to the arts

DONATE BY JUNE 30

Not every Tasmanian child has the same experiences at school, particularly children living in the more remote areas of the state. Your generosity this tax time will help Terrapin continue to tour our world-class performances to primary students around our island.

 

Give the gift of live theatre

 

You know from your close association with Terrapin that live theatre allows audiences to enter a creative world that is not linked to screens or media. Thanks to people like you, we can ignite curiosity, new ideas, new forms of self-expression and teach children to watch and listen.

 
 

“Our students would never see art like this unless we can provide it… and often these experiences are what kids talk about for a long time. A great experience.”

There are children in Tasmania who can’t afford a school uniform, let alone see a live theatre production.

 

Research shows that the arts and creative activities can help students develop personal, social, and cognitive skills that transfer to a wide range of academic and social situations and improve performance in their future careers.

 

Yet as the cost of living rises, our production and touring costs are too. Your generous donation by June 30 will help support students to see the performance, our team’s on-road touring costs or help us develop valuable classroom resources for teachers.

 

We can’t imagine a future without our Touring Schools program – can you? Donating this end of financial year means children do not miss out.

 

Terrapin has been travelling Tasmania for over 40 years, delivering magical live performances to school children across the state. For many children, this is their first experience with live theatre and opens their minds to other possibilities outside of their everyday lives. Terrapin urgently needs your support by June 30 to ensure that the touring school program continues for generations.
