Support Us

Help Fill the Empty Space!

Donate now through CanadaHelps.org.

MT Space is a not-for-profit organization which has thrived due to the collective dream of community builders in Kitchener-Waterloo and the broader Waterloo Region — has been successful because of the support of donors like you.

Drawing upon the wealth of multicultural identities living in the region, MT Space nurtures activity between performance artists of many disciplines, cultural orientations, and spaces of practice .

Through theatre, various traditions and cultural orientations meet in a space of formal innovation, to initiate new signs of identity and forms of theatrical expression, in the act of defining community itself.

Please consider donating on a recurring basis – knowing that we have smaller but regular support helps us to plan and deliver programming to our full potential and capacity.

CanadaHelps makes donating once or on a recurring basis easy – you can donate as a private individual or a business, have the choice to keep your generous giving anonymous and have the option of putting your gift towards specific funds – such as supporting the IMPACT Theatre Festival.

CanadaHelps will issue your receipt at tax time.

Thank you for your support!

Donating to MT Space — Benefits of being a donor

We’ve run, co-run and intrinsically supported several crowdfunding campaigns in the last few years, including: We Are Culture in 2013 with visionary Neruda Arts to augment IMPACT 13 with 7 fantastic weeks of intimate music and theatre experiences PLUS the inaugural, ground-shaking Kultrún Festival; and Make IMPACT Happen in 2015 to support IMPACT 15 and its commitment to bringing challenging, engaging contemporary performances to Waterloo Region, as well as lay the foundation for the IMPACT Stage&Story Market and whoa, did you ever make IMPACT happen! (You exceeded our funding goal and expectations!)

Perks, Benefits, Unforgettable Experiences

One of the best parts of interacting with our crowdfunding donors (for us, at least) is being able to give back perks. Even before these campaigns we’ve been giving bonus stuff: MT Space and IMPACT swag packages, goods and services from local businesses, swanky receptions, invite-only authentic middle-eastern banquets, puppets and visual art, theatre classes, one-on-one artist encounters and more.

Every year, every season, every ramp-up to IMPACT we have a different selection of perks. We will be updating our perks for our coming season soon.
