Thank you for being a part of the SummerWorks Performance Festival community.

Your ongoing support and involvement has ensured the continuation of the Festival, and our evolution into one of the country’s largest platforms for launching new Canadian work. Over the past five years alone, Festival alumni have won over 75 Dora Awards, three Governor General’s Awards, and multiple Festival premieres have moved on to successful tours in New York, and across Western Canada, and Europe.

We have big ideas and hopes for the future – expanding our artistic development and community engagement programs, expanding on our international exchanges, and continuing to foster hybrid forms and cross-disciplinary collaborations. As we move forward, we’re committed to keeping the Festival accessible by keeping ticket prices low, and reducing entrance fees for artists.

You can help us achieve our goals by donating to SummerWorks today. We hope you’ll help us build momentum as we embark on our next adventure.
