Brisbane Arts Theatre currently receives no government funding or grants and runs as an independent not-for-profit organisation. In the trying times of 2020, amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic, the Arts Theatre is unable to create its usual source of revenue by providing on-stage magic in the form of live theatre. Because of this, we rely heavily on donations from our devoted and loving community. Donations, both big and small, are always welcome, and we are forever grateful to our passionate and dedicated people.
We have recently received word that one of our beloved patrons, Peter McDonald, has passed on. His family have asked that in lieu of flowers and other funerary gifts, those wishing to acknowledge Peter’s memory make a donation to his favourite theatre. We are so very humbled by this, and we are deeply saddened to hear of Peter’s passing – he was a familiar face who had been a member of our tight-knit community for over a decade.
