Pay it Forward Initiative

At Festival of Voices, we continue to be passionate about making sure that everyone is welcome and able to attend the Festival, if they wish to do so. We pursue this in a variety of ways, one of which is ongoing conversations and measures regarding financial accessibility. We hold a broad range of free events, including The Big Sing, and the Pop-Up Program, and set the price points of our tickets to be as accessible as possible for as many people as possible, with a broad range of ticket costs across the program. This year, we are expanding our financially accessible options by implementing Serenade a Stranger.
Serenade a Stranger, Festival of Voices’ pay-it-forward initiative, helps to make our events accessible to those who can’t afford to purchase a ticket. When buying a ticket, you have the option to donate to the scheme, and your donation will support someone else to attend. Any donations into this pay-it-forward scheme over $2 are tax deductible.
If you would like to request 1-2 free tickets, please fill out the request form HERE.
Please note that we unfortunately cannot offer places for the multi-day workshops under this initiative.
