Art has the potential to change the way we see and experience the world.
SummerWorks has always been a place where different people, ideas, forms and perspectives intersect. The Festival is a space where people can come together, be challenged, and take positive steps towards a better future.
As a Festival committed to re-imagining and innovating performance, we are also redefining how a Festival can operate and what a Festival can be.
We hope you’ll support us in creating an environment where exciting, progressive new work can flourish.
