Community Partner

Gateway Theatre

A STAGE FOR RICHMOND

Sometimes it feels like we as a community are overlooked – as a suburb, a second city, an in-betweener.

But we know as well as anyone that this city shouldn’t be underestimated. It has a diversity that is unmatched, and a potential that is unlimited. It deserves more than it gets – it deserves to be heard.

At Gateway, we provide a platform for the whole community to contribute to, and benefit from, the performing arts. A place where you can learn from others, see yourself represented, and take pride in the rich cultural landscape that Richmond has to offer.

North by Northeast

Toronto has one of the greatest live music scenes in the world and NXNE works with the city’s remarkable music venues to showcase top emerging Canadian and international acts throughout Festival Week. The Festival also features secret shows by top artists.

Discovery is at the core of NXNE and artists including: Billy Talent, The Arkells, Daniel Caesar, Feist, the Weeknd, Sam Roberts, Knaan, Lizzo, the Lumineers and thousands more all played intimate, NXNE gigs early in their careers.

Using a model developed through our partnership with SXSW, NXNE runs tightly produced shows that run on a strict schedule designed to encourage confidant club hopping, certain artists will appear when advertised.

Festival admission is through low-cost festival passes or single venue tickets. NXNE is committed to eliminating financial barriers for artists and doesn’t charge performers to apply and all bands are paid to play.

Detailed band bios and information on performers will begin to appear on this website and through our media partners, especially NEXT magazine and nextmag.ca, starting in April.

NEXT Magazine

From the original creators of NOW Magazine, NEXT is Toronto’s essential guide to live music, theatre, movies, visual art, comedy, food, culture and fresh ideas for building a better city.

FREE and available in TTC subway stations and more than 400 other targeted locations around the city, including: bars, restaurants, book shops, live music venues, retail cannabis outlets – everywhere Toronto goes to find out: WHAT’S NEXT?

TAIWANfest Vancouver

TAIWANfest is a cultural exchange platform held annually in Downtown Vancouver for over 30 years. Rather than solely focusing on Taiwan’s stories, the core idea of the event is to foster cultural connections between Taiwan, specific countries of the world, and Canada through themed programming each year. It aims to make the Taiwanese community a promoter of Canada’s multiculturalism. The festival bridges Taiwanese culture with mainstream Canadian society and various ethnic groups.

Pancouver

Pancouver is a Vancouver-based media highlighting underrepresented communities in the arts and culture scene. Editor Charlie Smith, with decades of experience in Vancouver’s journalism circle, commits to telling “people stories”, sharing the unique thoughts of talents that mainstream media might overlook. Run by a registered charity, Pancouver’s articles are free to read online and offerend in multiple languages. Pancouver believes that accessibility is the first step to engaging the public, and through the translation process, they hope to break down silos between the diverse communities of Vancouver and Canada.
