Support & Giving

At the Ko Festival of Performance we repeatedly hear about the moments of transformation and transcendence our community of audience members and artists have experienced at our home in Amherst MA. as they participate in our

  • theme-based seasons of performances and the stimulating opportunities for dialogue that follow every performance
  • intensive six-day workshops where people come to take a creative leap
  • rehearsal residencies where new work is broached in an environment of rigorous support
  • internships that expose young people, particularly women, to technical and managerial skills, multiple creative processes, and time with the extraordinary roster of artists we produce

While we continue to run a “lean and mean” operation, our costs are rising, as are those of the artists we produce. Be they moments of sublime beauty, provocative ideas, or rolling-in-the-aisles humor, we need your help to achieve them!
