    Areas to Support

    The AWBF have identified three pillars of support: Sustainability, Education and Social Impact.

    These pillars will provide the framework for projects that meet the needs of our community and ensure the security of our Festival for years to come.

    Your support of these initiatives not only promotes wooden boats and maritime culture but also facilitates ongoing educational, social and cultural outreach programs within the Tasmanian community.
