Our Navigators program is how we connect, interact and form relationships with donors and patrons in ways that are flexible and personalised.

We see our Navigators as:

  • adventurous and committed champions of Chamber Made Opera
  • vital supporters of the work and ongoing longevity of the company
  • advocates for the unknown who urge us to explore the limits of the artform

Our Navigators regularly attend Chamber Made Opera productions and events. They are valued and dear friends to the company and to the artists with whom we work.

We look forward to continually exploring the Navigator program as we question and evolve notions of income, sustainability, growth and patronage in these challenging economic and political times.

As an example, contributions from our Navigators lead the way in:

  • – helping pay artists, contributing to new work commissions
  • – paying a weekly wage for a musician, performer, creative or crew on a creative development of a new work
  • – helping pay an emerging artist to work in our office or as part of an artistic laboratory

Cash donations of $1,000 and up

And in-kind donations of $2,000 or more

Navigators who give amounts of $5,000 or more will be recognised as Co- Commissioners and Instigators of nominated new works and projects.

Navigators that give amounts of $10,000 or more will be recognised as singular Commissioners and Instigators of nominated new works and projects.

In-kind offerings of materials, products and services are much appreciated. Offerings such as accommodation for visiting artists and beverages for our events are often needed and always welcome. If you have an in-kind suggestion of any kind we would love to hear from you.

We also value smaller cash donations. You can journey with our Navigators as an Explorer (donations of $200-$999) or become a Stowaway (donations between $50-199).


Bequests are a generous and visionary way to support the work of Chamber Made Opera into the future. This kind of legacy gift is appreciated with profound gratitude and makes a tangible impact on our company and our work.
