And bring poetry to life for a new generation

Poetry in Action provides a unique learning experience by merging poetry with live performance for students and educators. With your support, we can:

  • Empower students across Australia to excel in comprehension and literature studies.
  • Reaching regional and First Nations communities needing access to high-quality arts and education resources.
  • Provide live theatre to communities who otherwise don’t have access to professional performances.
  • Engage youth with lessons in empathy, confidence, creativity, and a deeper understanding of our past and themselves.

Your donation fuels this journey, opening doors to a brighter future.

Donations are critical to Poetry in Action’s continued operation, particularly in regional and remote Australia.

Your gift may be used for any of the following:

  • Delivery of our touring programs across Australia.
  • The development and creation of new theatrical work.
  • Subsidising tickets for students in lower socio-economic areas.
  • Delivery of high-quality professional learning programs.
