This is a very challenging time for both the Festival and wider arts sector. Our kaupapa is to uplift the mana of artists and creative practitioners and so we will be honouring artist fees and crew wages, some of whom are facing many months without work due to Covid-19 and the Red setting restrictions. We also have significant costs already spent and our staff overheads to cover and maintain. Your donation will help to cover these costs.
