Musicians from across Australia and around the world have established UKARIA as a South Australian cultural icon. We never imagined that artists of the calibre of Dawn Upshaw and Anne Sofie von Otter would be approaching us but as more of these unique opportunities have been coming our way, we decided it was time to create a fund for the future. In June 2018, we established the UKARIA Foundation. Chaired by David McKee AO, its aim is to support UKARIA’s cultural program in perpetuity.

The Board of UKARIA recognises and thanks everyone who has made a donation.
