Throughout our 30-year history as an education provider, Collarts has always been a proud supporter and contributor to the Australian music industry. Committed to the community and the relationships we share, we're always finding new ways of fostering a healthy industry ecosystem for the next generation.
This is why, on AusMusic T-Shirt Day, we need your help.
Taking place on Friday 15th of November, AusMusic T-Shirt Day is a massive nation-wide celebration of Aussie music, created to remind us of how lucky we are to have such a thriving industry—and to give directly back artists, their teams and labels by showcasing merch.
In the lead up to the day, Collarts is fundraising money for Support Act: a unique registered charity in Australia founded in 1997, helping artists and music workers in crisis. As Support Act share, their services are for those doing it tough. "This may be due to illness, injury, a mental health problem or some other crisis that impacts on their ability to work in music," they explain.
Collarts will also be matching dollar-for-dollar on single donations up to $500. We believe Support Act provide services crucial to the health and success of our industry, and want to champion their values and continue the destigmatisation seeking help for mental health.
