About Us

Community Support Program

Brisbane Powerhouse is the home for living art, ideas and experiences, representing the personality of contemporary Brisbane. As part of Brisbane Powerhouse’s cultural vision, we strive to be inclusive and support the needs of the greater Brisbane community.

One way we pursue this is through the Brisbane Powerhouse Community Support Program, which offers a limited number of show tickets to support the work of registered charities that align with staff-nominated focus areas.

Our current focus areas:

  • Social welfare
  • Arts and culture
  • Environmental
  • Local community (New Farm and immediate surrounds)

We do not prioritise requests for support from:

  • Faith based charities
  • Organisations with a political agenda
  • Major charities that have large organisational costs and large support base
  • Sporting bodies
  • Organisations or charities that have a record of environmentally destructive activity
  • Organisations that discriminate in employment practices or delivery of goods and services, on the basis of race, colour, religion, sex, age, pregnancy, national origin, physical or mental disability, genetics, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status or any legally protected status.
  • Hirers requesting to collect money from patrons in the venue.

Because we are a non for profit ourselves, unfortunately we are unable to provide financial assistance or sponsorships to community programs.

If you are interested in applying to the Community Support Program, you must meet the following eligibility criteria:

  • ACNC registered charity status
  • Be a not for profit organisation
  • Current ABN
  • Hold licence if support is to be used for a raffle
  • Based in Greater Brisbane region, with preference for New Farm and immediate surrounds
  • Clear alignment with focus areas
  • Have not received support from the Community Support Program in the past financial year
