2015 Annual Report Released

The 2015 Mardi Gras season was a vibrant demonstration of the amazing power of passion and community - a reminder, as we reflect on all that has been achieved over the years, that every small step forward joins with all the other small steps to create a global momentum for change.

The Annual Report showcases the recent Festival season and offers you an opportunity to learn more about the ongoing organisational transformation.

Our team is hard at work preparing for the upcoming 2016 Festival and we look forward to announcing more about this at our season launch event in November. Keep an eye out for your invitation to join us this year.

With our thanks
