Triple Act Theatre & Arts Funding Update


2023 brought some challenges for Triple Act and as a result of these difficulties, we restructured how the organisation operated.

Regarding the uncertainties about our future, we’ve dedicated significant efforts to funding applications in recent months, but unfortunately, we have been unsuccessful in acquiring funding to continue delivering classes and the organisation shall be closing.

All classes shall conclude on the 19th of June 2024

Thank you to all our facilitators, volunteers and participants for continued support through this time.
