Slingsby’s 2017 – 2018 program

A fund to support Adelaide based Slingsby

Days Left

Theatre is a powerful artform that helps us to find our place in the world. The live experience of theatre, with ephemeral communities coming together for a brief moment in time to share a story, builds social cohesion and a sense of empathy for others. When the shared story is epic and moving and uplifting the memory of this experience lives on in our hearts and minds for many years.

Slingsby is committed to producing and touring theatre that acknowledges both the sunshine and the shadows of the human experience. We fearlessly present to young and adult audiences stories that explore personal human anxieties and concerns in a way that we believe will build a more robust society. Ultimately our work is emotive and always uplifting.

If you would like to support us to make heartfelt, world class theatre we would love you to make a donation (big or small) to our campaign.
