Here are some ways you can support the performing arts sector during the COVID-19 crisis:
Through our donations page you can choose one of three funds to support:

  1. Make a donation to the General Fund so we can continue and improve upon the work of supporting artists and arts groups affected by COVID-19
  2. Make a charitable donation to support Peterborough’s incubating space for professional theatre and dance artists, The Theatre On King.

  • the creation and touring of innovative contemporary performance arts
  • a variety of activities including talks, lectures, pre-show chats, artist residencies, and curated programming
  • commissioning and co-commissioning new work from significant artists and committing to their presentation
  • supporting new work and new directions for artists through residencies, and financial and administrative support
  • supporting the development of the local dance, theatre and performance community by presenting area artists and arranging specialized classes and workshops
