Collarts is proud to make the switch to Humanitix, an Australian, non-profit, ethical ticketing platform that helps educate disadvantaged children worldwide, for all Collarts events.
Founded by two friends—Joshua Ross and Adam McCurdie—Humanitix directs 100% of profits from ticket booking fees to fund a range of education programs, working with children’s charities including Yalari, Room to Read, Manaiakalani Education Trust, Code.org and Adara.
Collarts Events Coordinator Matilda Elgood shares, “Switching to Humanitix has to be one of the easiest things you can do to help make a difference. It offers everything you need and more plus using the booking fees for something meaningful, so it was an easy decision for Collarts to make.”

Ethical leaders in their own right, Ross and McCurdie started Humanitix as a pact to escape the corporate world, wanting to make a difference in their next venture. In pursuit of creating something meaningful, they followed a powerful idea to truly transform the industry. And the result? The fastest-growing ticketing platform in Australia and New Zealand.
Since its inception in 2016, Humanitix has transformed over $1 million of booking fees into funding education, financing around 140,000 days of education for children around the globe.
Notably, in 2018, the platform won the Google Impact Challenge. It's since doubled in size every six months as more event hosts jump on board, contributing to bridging the education gap.
