The team at JUTE Theatre is calling on its Cairns community for a helping hand this financial quarter in its aim to appoint a Development Officer.
Creative Partnerships Australia have come to the party already, pledging it will match, dollar for dollar, every 100 per cent, tax deductible donation made to JUTE by the FNQ community.
According to JUTE Theatre’s CEO and Artistic Director, Suellen Maunder, Creative Partnerships Australia has presented JUTE Theatre with this special fundraising opportunity in recognition of its longevity and outstanding national reputation.
“This is the first time in the theatre company’s 24-year history that it has been acknowledged this way and is a great head start to bring funds into the city and provide employment.”
“For more than two decades JUTE has worked hard to enrich its local community with culture by telling people’s stories and facilitating engagement with the arts. Our work in remote Indigenous communities, with young people and with artists of differing abilities is all part of JUTE’s evolution,” said Ms Maunder.
The company needs to be sustainable for the next quarter of a century which is why JUTE’s team is planning to appoint a Development Officer.
“This person will be responsible for generating new revenue streams and sourcing opportunities that will underpin JUTE’s productions, touring series of remote FNQ, its theatre school, online playwrights’ program and more. We have until early next year to achieve our fundraising goal and we are committed to giving it our best shot.”
“The arts are super-hot to trot right now and in line with Cairns Regional Council’s investment into the renewed and cultural vibrancy of our city, JUTE is keen to play a leading role in enhancing its livability that will in turn create further investment and secure long term growth.”
In short! For every dollar donated to JUTE, Creative Partnerships Australia will double the money; matching every donation, dollar for dollar up to $50,000. For example – every $100 will become $200, every $500 will become $1000 and so on.
This is your opportunity to make our world a better place through theatre.
