Supporting local performers, creatives and crew

ACTober is an annual month-long campaign shining a spotlight on the performing arts industry and supporting those within it.

Launched as a Trans-Tasman campaign in 2020 by the Alliance of Australasian Performing Arts Benevolent Funds (AAPABF), ACTober unites the six Actors’ and Entertainers’ Benevolent Funds from across Australia and New Zealand in an effort to raise awareness and funds for those in the performing arts industry in need.

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.
