Play your part in Indian Ink’s success
For over 22 years Indian Ink has been making world class theatre. We’re driven by our love of the art and sustained by a group of supporters who are passionate about live performance.
The engagement of our supporters enables us to create new work and perform throughout New Zealand and around the world and we love them for it!
Thank you for helping us share the Indian Ink love.

All donations make a dramatic difference (dramatic – see what we did there?).
No matter how big or small, your contribution will be the wind beneath our wings – bringing our ideas to life and transporting audiences to exciting new worlds.
Your generosity means more people enriched by our work, more kiwi artists employed, more local talent developed and more New Zealand theatre on the world stage.
Create a Legacy with Indian Ink
We want to continue making the kind of stories that will live on, and we’d love you to be part of that legacy.
We love telling stories.
Stories that open mouths with laughter in order to slip something serious in.
Stories that celebrate our difference but connect our common humanity.
Stories that change the way people see the world.
Every gift makes a difference, no matter the size so, after looking after those closest to you, please consider making a bequest to Indian Ink to help it flourish in the future, without it impacting on your life now.
If you are keen to include Indian Ink Trust in your will, please let us know so that we can help with any questions you might have, and also to thank you and recognise your special association with us.
Please contact our General Manger, Jude, or call 09 815 3302, if you’d like more information.
Become a Champion
Do you have a great network of people? Are you one of the first to know what is happening in your town, and love the arts?
If so, we’d love to talk to you about being an ‘Indian Ink Champion’. You’ll help spread the word about our shows coming to your town, and encourage your network of people to purchase tickets, you’ll be helping us and help others to see great theatre.
If you’d like to know more about becoming a Champion, please email Jacob.
A Programme for Young Artists
Each year two talented individuals aged 18–26 get to join the Ink family as our resident young artists. This is a unique opportunity for emerging creatives to develop their skills, guided and nurtured by our experienced team.
This year, we’re working with two artists who are an invaluable part of the Ink family, Ankita Singh and Bala Murali Shingade. They joined us as Interns in 2017 and have gone on to be movers and shakers in the theatre and film scene. We’re so excited to be embarking on this journey with them.
Also as part of Next Generation, we host regular steering group meetings over tea and bikkies in the Ink office. This is open to anyone aged 18-26 to come along, get creative juices flowing and feed your opinions into what’s going on at Indian Ink.
If you want to know how to get involved in Next Generation, email Bala.
