A heartfelt thanks from the Red Stitch Ensemble to the incredibly generous KindRED donors who have offered extra support in recent weeks, in light of federal arts funding cuts.

These donations will help us to maintain artist wage increases, and support vital new Australian work through our INK program. It means so much to us to have such a wonderful community behind us.

If you would like to make a tax-deductible donation prior to the end of the financial year, we would warmly welcome your contribution. You can donate online, or contact us for details.

Thank you.
