Visiting Artist Accommodation Project


The Flying Fruit Fly Circus is the national youth circus in Australia. We have been proudly based in Albury Wodonga since we were founded in 1979. In 2019, we celebrate our 40th birthday. 

As a regional company, one our biggest challenges is meeting the increasing cost of bringing the world's best circus artists and trainers to Albury to work with our young people. In 2018, with the help of the Australian Government, the Flying Fruit Fly Circus purchased two self-contained 2-bedroom units in South Albury, a short walk from our world-class training facility. 

We are now hoping to raise $60,000 to refurbish and fit out these two units, and we need your help.

The project will include the purchasing of all furniture usually associated with accommodation - from white goods to linen and utensils - as well as structural work including bathroom and kitchen renovations, and work to connect the two units through a shared patio and entertaining area. This is an important feature of the accommodation designed to facilitate a positive culture and experience for artists visiting regional Australia. 

This is a legacy project to celebrate 40 years of the circus, with the hope of providing safe, nearby and fit for purpose accommodation for visiting artists, trainers, directors and designers - artists who come from all over the world to provide incredible opportunities for our young students to learn and create. 

Please consider investing in the next 40 years of Flying Fruit Fly Circus by helping us launch our artist accommodation with a gift. Gifts of all sizes are welcome, and donations made before 28 February 2019 will be matched dollar for dollar through Creative Partnerships Plus1 program. All donations are tax deductible. 


If you would like more information about this project, our 40th anniversary activities or how else you might support the Fruities, please get in touch with our Associate Producer Tahni Froudist on 02 6043 0780.
