Christmas was going to be a hard time at the transition house, but attending the Panto helped to make the holiday season better for me and my daughter. You made our holiday season special.” — Cultch Connects patron
The Cultch Connects program provides complimentary tickets to children and families in our community so they can enjoy an evening of fun and live theatre, together.
Each year, over 1000 children and their families are able to attend our annual holiday treat, the East Van Panto, because of donors to The Cultch Connects Program. For families who are struggling to make ends meet, caring for a child with a serious illness, or who are new to Canada, the holidays can be overwhelming. Your gift to The Cultch Connects Program can help make the holiday season a little brighter for the children and families in our community.
Your support also ensures that The Cultch Connects Program can provide free tickets for Cultch productions throughout the year to hundreds of individuals from mental health facilities, recovery centres, and community organizations. With your help that number can grow and the program will continue to thrive.
By making our theatre accessible to everyone, you’re helping us inspire the next generation of artists, musicians and theatre-goers, ensuring that our beautiful city remains a centre for diverse art and culture for years to come.
We know you already believe deeply in the power of the arts. Now you can share that passion with those in our community who most need it.
Thank you for making The Cultch a community gathering place and an arts heartbeat.
