Dame Malvina's Rising Stars

Dame Malvina's Rising Stars

Welcome to Dame Malvina Majors' Rising Stars
This is our third year of facilitating this event, allowing some of Mid Canterbury's finest emerging artists a platform to showcase their talents alongside Dame Malvina's Foundation members.

The Dame Malvina Major Foundation in its 29th year of existence is credited for nurturing a generation of artists who have lifted the standard of performing arts in New Zealand to unprecedented levels. These artists are of international and national standing and to have them performing in Ashburton along side our own local talent will be an experience of a life time.

Dame Malvina Major and the Rising Stars is organised by the Youth Institute of Ashburton and the Rotary Club Ashburton and Ashburton Plains.
Funds raised by the concert will support youth activities of the Youth Institute and the Dame Foundation in a 50/50 split.

Youth Institute of Ashburton
The Youth Institute of Ashburton was established in the late 1990's as a joint project of the Ashburton Rotary Club and Rotary Club of Ashburton Plains to support youth in Mid Canterbury.
The Institute is a small group of volunteers, including representatives from the Rotary Clubs, Safer Ashburton, New Zealand Police, Grow Mid Canterbury and local schools. The institute focuses on developing initiatives and providing services to youth in areas that may not otherwise be catered for. Projects include the "Kick Start" leadership programme for senior primary students, the "CACTUS" development programme for 11-15 year old children currently running in both Ashburton and Methven, and individual support through small grants.

The Institute's work is generously supported by the Lion Foundation, the Mackenzie Charitable Foundation and events such as this.
