The Final Countdown. ATYP's Arts Table 2017

Celebrate ATYP as we kick off our countdown to move with an 80’s themed fundraiser!

As ATYP prepares to leave our Wharf home of 20 years, we are throwing the biggest party Pier 4/5 has ever seen! Money raised through tickets and on the night will go towards funding more ATYP WORKSHOP SCHOLARSHIPS in 2018. Workshop scholarships are a vital part of ATYP programs and they provide young people with access to awesome programs they otherwise would not be able to attend. 

Donations made to ATYP on the night or through our ticketing system for this event will be eligible for matched funds by the Macquarie Group Foundation.

The Final Countdown will be a celebration of all things 80s, as well as all things ATYP. Get ready for trivia, games, dinner, drinks, smash 80’s hits from a live band, special guests and loads more!

So, what are the details?
