The Balnaves Foundation

The Balnaves Foundation is a private philanthropic organisation that was established in 2006 by Neil Balnaves AO to provide support to charitable enterprises across Australia. It supports eligible organisations that aim to create a better Australia through education, medicine and the arts with a focus on young people, the disadvantaged and Indigenous communities.

The Balnaves Foundation has been funding Belvoir’s Indigenous theatre program since 2011. Each year, the Foundation provides the financial underpinning for Belvoir to present two Indigenous works. A range of access programs are attached to the productions, including an unwaged performance and schools matinees.

Showing its commitment to Indigenous work at Belvoir, The Balnaves Foundation has supported our productions of The Drover’s Wife, Title and Deed, Jack Charles vs TheCrown, Windmill Baby, Beautiful One Day, Don’t Take Your Love to Town, The Cake Man, Coranderrk, 20 Questions, Brothers Wreck, Radiance and Kill the Messenger.

2017 will represent the sixth year of the annual Balnaves Foundation Indigenous Playwright’s Award – a $25,000 award comprising $10,000 prize money and a $15,000 commission for a new play.

Belvoir has a long history of working with Indigenous artists, including writers, directors, designers and actors, and of portraying unique Indigenous stories. Under Artistic Director Eamon Flack, we continue our commitment to presenting significant Indigenous works and engaging Indigenous artists at Belvoir in both our Upstairs and Downstairs theatres.

Belvoir extends our warmest thanks to The Balnaves Foundation for its ongoing support.
