Muffin Break and Wakakirri are joining forces to bring the benefits of performing arts and storytelling to schools in Australia. Muffin Break is sponsoring Wakakirri, provider of the largest performing arts program for schools, as a Major partner as of May 2018.
As part of the partnership, Muffin Break has committed to sponsor disadvantaged schools to create their own Story Dance productions to perform at the national Wakakirri Story Dance Challenge. The community partnership will unite Muffin Break’s 210 stores with the 250 schools that participate annually in Wakakirri.
“Partnering with Wakakirri has presented us at Muffin Break with an opportunity to give back and support regional communities, offering Aussie kids the opportunity to do what they love most,” said Muffin Break General Manager Natalie Brennan.
Wakakirri founder and festival director Adam Loxley also praised working together, saying: “We are excited for this new partnership and are grateful to Muffin Break for recognising the work we have been doing for over 25 years”.
