I'm Philip Patston. I'm best recognised for my ten-year career as a comedian and entertainer but, these days, it's my passion for social change that is getting me noticed.


The National Youth Drama School has asked me to speak for 20 minutes at their opening on 20 April. I'd love to do this as the students are 14-18 year olds and it would be a unique opportunity for me to share my message of diversity, creativity and social change with these young people. 

NYDS is a non-profit organisation and can only offer $140 towards travel and expenses. It's a ten hour return car journey from Auckland to Havelock North (a long time for 20 minutes!) and return airfares for a support person will be at least $375. Although NYDS have offered a billet, it may not be accessible, so I may also need hotel accommodation. 

I get asked often to speak to audiences like this every year and have to decline because they don't have the funds to cover my costs. With your support I can say yes to NYDS and other requests, and share my passionate belief that, individually and collectively, we have a powerful opportunity to significantly change our social fabric — simply by creatively reimagining diversity.

Included in my funding goal are:

  • Flights, for which I've allowed $500.00 
  • Accommodation $300 
  • Rewards $350 

Any additional funds raised over and above my funding goal will cover costs for other trips during the year. This could, for example, be five trips, at $800 each, a total of $4000.
