Community Performances

Bangarra’s national Community Nights program is generously supported by the Balnaves Foundation. Community Nights are dedicated performances for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and our way of connecting with those who share the culture and history sewn through our storytelling.

For Neil Balnaves, founder of the Balnaves Foundation, supporting Bangarra’s vision was important to the Foundation’s aim of creating a better Australia.

"The Balnaves Foundation is proud to support Bangarra's commitment to ensuring that their inspiring, authentic and positive work is accessible to all. Through a series of special performances for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, we hope to respect and honour the community relationships that are the foundation blocks of Bangarra."
