Along with re-streaming the 2020 IGNITE! Festival on Facebook, we are running our matching campaign! With the help of board member Dany Allard, where every dollar donated becomes three dollars! If you are able, please consider donating so we can continue to create high quality theatrical experiences and continue our support of Calgary’s Emerging Artists through IGNITE!
IGNITE! and Sage Theatre affirm that Black Lives Matter. If you are looking for ways to help please donate to the Calgary Black Empowerment Fund, or a similar initiative in your region.
Sage Theatre affirms our commitment to Anti-Racism.
We acknowledge receipt of the letter from the 35//50 Initiative and commit to enacting change within our organization and our programming. This means 35% IBPOC (Indigenous, Black, and People of Colour) and 50% female or non-binary in paid positions.
We are currently enacting change to put us closer to this goal, including adding more positions and building a call to join our board. We are finalizing details on both of these and will release more information as soon as possible! We will also be collaborating with the 35//50 Initiative to assist in reporting on our progress.
We also affirm that we will remain in conversation with our community as much as possible. If there are any questions, please contact [email protected]
