Support New Works at 30!

30 years ago the New Performance Works Society (now known as New Works) was conceived in Barb Clausen’s kitchen with her friends: Fran Brafman, Leslie Fiddler, Janet Miller, Wendy Newman, Julie Poskitt, Katherine Scheidt, and Gina Sufrin - all accomplished performing arts leaders. The group wanted to create opportunities to share interesting music, dance, and theatre work with each other and Vancouver audiences.

From these humble beginnings, New Works has grown to be the heartbeat of a diverse dance community. New Works is a home for artists, audiences, volunteers, and cultural workers, with programs focused on helping each group grow and thrive within the dance milieu.

Please help us to raise $30,000 over the next 30 months – ensuring the future viability of New Works programs. This season we are looking to add 30 new supporters to our community:

Don't have a Canada Helps account already? Set your account up FIRST here to then complete your monthly donation. With an account you'll easily be able to manage your donation and download your tax receipts anytime you like. 

New Works is committed to providing low and no cost opportunities to dance audiences and artists in efforts to support equity-owed artists, to be a hub for artistic excellence, and to build community through dance. This work is supported by public funders, private foundations, and individual donors like you.

Make a gift to New Works today and become a champion of dance access for all.
