Across Australia and New Zealand the performing arts community is uniting to shine a spotlight on our industry and the people within it.

This October, help the VABT support Victorian performers, creatives and crew by donating through ACTober.

ACTober is a month-long campaign uniting the six Actors’ and Entertainers’ Benevolent Funds from across Australia and New Zealand.

ACTober celebrates the storytellers and the makers. The entertainers and the crews. It is a time to reflect on the importance of the performing arts, and the role they plays in all our lives.

In a world grappling with a crisis, ACTober is also an opportunity to acknowledge the struggle many in our industry are currently facing.

Above all, ACTober is an opportunity to support the performing arts.
