Awards 2018

The Tait Memorial Trust is pleased to be assisting these fine young artists from Australia and New Zealand in 2018.

The Tait Adopt a Performer scheme
The adopt a performer scheme allows a donor to directly support a young performing artist from Australia or New Zealand annually for a three-year commitment.

Please click here to learn how to actively involve yourself in the career development of a young performer.

The greatest return, however, would be to see your awardee fulfill their true potential and, as they graduate to a professional career, the pleasure of knowing that you played an important part in making this possible.
