ACTober vital trans-Tasman campaign for performing arts workers

A month-long campaign throughout October will give back to the artists who are lifting our spirits during tough times.

Throughout the month of October, the Alliance of Australasian Performing Arts Benevolent Funds (AAPABF) are again calling for people across Australia to make a donation in support of those who have continued to bring magic into our lives through performance and entertainment during COVID.

Launched in October 2020 with star-studded support from Cate Blanchett as its inaugural patron, ACTober is a combined effort of six different actors and entertainers’ funds from around the country to raise money for live performance sector workers badly hit by the pandemic.
