Overview

WAAPA is very grateful for the generous support of our sponsors, community partners, and philanthropic donors, and for the hard work of the Friends of The Academy.

All of the amazing productions you see at WAAPA are entirely self-funded, so the need for corporate sponsorship and donations is great. Likewise, our visiting artists program, which brings professional choreographers, technicians, artists, musicians and directors to the Academy to work with our students, is an essential part of the WAAPA experience and highly beneficial to their education.

Our corporate partners’ support through in-kind and cash sponsorship helps underwrite the costs associated with the Academy’s annual repertoire of productions and, along with philanthropic donations from members of the public, funds a range of activities including the selection of prizes and scholarships awarded to outstanding WAAPA students every year.

Community partnerships with various metropolitan and regional councils enable us to tour productions and concerts off-campus, increasing our community engagement and giving our students a wealth of performance opportunities. It also helps promote WAAPA to the greater community.
