We urge you to donate to the Calgary Black Empowerment Fund, or other Black-centred organizations or initiatives to assist with their work to affect positive change in the Black Calgary community.

This year’s IGNITE! festival experience is venturing into the unknown with an entirely digitally streamed lineup. With this comes issues of financial sustainability. If you are able please consider donating to help us support the next generation of Calgary’s Emerging Artists.

Donations will be accepted by Canada Helps or PayPal.

Canadian participants are able to donate by the Sage Theatre’s Canada Helps page, which provides a tax receipt for donations of $3 or more.

For anyone outside of Canada, or for people who do not wish to receive a tax receipt, the Sage Theatre’s PayPal account is the answer to your contribution.

We thank you for helping us equip the next generation of explorers to face the creative Great Unknown! The performing arts have been hit hard by COVID-19, but we are proud to be providing all artists in our festival with honorariums for their work.
