Our Community

Waternish is committed to social responsibility and contributing to the wider community. Below are some of the ways we connect with organisations across industries which align to the interests and causes close to Waternish and its team.

As a longtime patron of the arts, Waternish Managing Director Simon White, also opted to partner with some prominent and highly-regarded arts organisations. Recognising the many hurdles arts and cultural organisations face on both local and global scales, Waternish supports the following:

Waternish is a Corporate Partner of the Adelaide Festival, the arts and cultural showcase event of Adelaide’s annual Mad March season.

Since 1960 Adelaide Festival has been a defining feature of South Australian culture. Each year the creative team scours the globe for an eclectic and thought-provoking mix of acclaimed theatre productions, dance, musicians, writers and visual arts exhibitions to present to audiences in Adelaide.

In 2024, Waternish will support Festival Connect, a program to provide funding for transport and accommodation to children from disadvantaged or regional schools so students can visit festival shows in Adelaide.

Waternish is a Corporate Partner of State Theatre Company South Australia (STCSA) the state’s flagship theatre company. STCSA commissions, performs and tours theatrical productions of new and existing, classic and contemporary, Australian and international work. 

The company is also committed to being accessible for all audiences and to a diversity of voices, including First Nations and culturally and linguistically diverse voices.

In 2024, Waternish becomes a Presenting Partner with STCSA, helping to bring The Puzzle, a play by David Williamson, to the stage.
