Thank you to the Slaight Family Foundation for an incredible gift!

September 28, 2022
The Theatre Centre is grateful to be a part of The Slaight Initiative, a $15 million gift to 22 Canadian theatre companies to help the performing arts industry recover from pandemic-related closures.

Over the next two years, The Slaight Initiative will provide funding for artist fees, production costs, and marketing costs. For many including ourselves, this support is transformative and couldn’t have arrived at a more vital time. This incredibly generous gift will help us continue the work we do.

“At the heart of The Theatre Centre is a mission to support artists’ big ideas over long periods of time, which can sometimes be challenging to fund,” said Aislinn Rose, General and Artistic Director of The Theatre Centre. “This is a life-changing contribution to our organization and the artists we serve.”

At The Theatre Centre, we believe resources go further when we share them. This tremendous $250,000 gift allows us to continue supporting artists and their creative ideas, creating more opportunities for experimentation and exploration that push the boundaries of traditional art forms. We are appreciative to the entire team at the Slaight Family Foundation for their support of our work and the wider performing arts sector.
