If there's anything we learned during lockdown, it's that the arts and entertainment sector need more support than ever. Without the creative outlet, community, and financial security that live shows offer, musicians across Australia struggled during the pandemic.
That's why this AusMusic T-Shirt Day, we need your help.
Taking place on Friday 19th November, AusMusic T-Shirt Day is a nationwide celebration of Aussie music. Give back to your favourite artists by buying their merch, donating, or raising awareness by wearing a band shirt and sharing on social media.
In the lead up to the day, Collarts is fundraising money for Support Act: an Australian not-for-profit helping artists and music workers in crisis. As Support Act share, their services are for those doing it tough, and post-lockdown, their services are more vital than ever.
Collarts will also be matching dollar-for-dollar on single donations, as well as $5 per Instagram story tag on the day, up to $1000. As an education provider of the creative arts, we believe in the power of supporting our creative community through not just their best moments, but also when they need it the most.
Here's how you can make a difference
