Ulumbarra Foundation

The Ulumbarra Foundation has been established to attract philanthropic support for Central Victoria’s performing arts.

A strong performing arts sector with the ability to contribute to its own development will benefit regional residents and businesses alike by adding to the rich tapestry of cultural experiences in Central Victoria.

Named to recognise Bendigo’s new world-class performance theatre, The Ulumbarra Foundation is the only charity in Central Victoria devoted to performing arts.


The Foundation’s purpose is to benefit the development and delivery of performing arts at Bendigo’s unique arts venues, notably Ulumbarra Theatre, The Capital, Bendigo Town Hall and The Engine Room.

The Foundation’s activities will also support performing arts organisations, artists and the wider regional community through inspirational programs and funding initiatives.


  • To provide a framework to enable new funding sources to flow to Central Victoria’s performing arts programs, venues and artists.

  • To raise awareness of and wide participation in performing arts programs and venues.
  • To develop and engage regional artists, audiences and communities.
