Sponsorship Opportunities

Free Flow Gala | WIP Low Income Ticket Program

Free Flow Gala Sponsorship

The W.I.P. presentations will feature some of the top choreographers and dancers from the local, provincial and Canadian arts community. The W.I.P. Series is possible, in part, because of the generous spirit of the many artists and community members who are involved. But we need your support to help ensure this program continues to flourish and evolve.

Your sponsorship contribution goes directly to pay the artistic performance fees and facility costs for the performance events. It will also help support the promotional efforts that spread the word about the W.I.P Series to the wider community. Lastly, your support will help to keep the ticket prices affordable, so that many people can take advantage of what the series has to offer.

WIP Low Income Ticket Program Title Sponsorship

Sponsoring the WIP Low Income Ticket program will allow us to share the experience and joy of dance with Saskatoon and area based people who may not otherwise be able to afford to attend an artistic performance as it will allow us to gift 75 complimentary tickets to our applicants in your name.

The program is VERY popular! Each season to date all available free low income tickets were requested for the showings. It is important to us to continuously make dance accessible. As a charitable organization we strive to help to decrease barriers to access the arts and increase our participant enjoyment of them. The arts not only enhance the quality of our life, stimulate our own senses and creativity and lift our spirits but they also create a sense of wonder and magic in people of all ages and backgrounds. Movement is a universal form of language that transcends all barriers. With your sponsorship we aim to fill a void and create opportunities that should be made available to all people who desire them. We strongly believe that the arts are a vital and crucial part of human life and a healthy, vibrant community and with your help we can share our love of the art form with everyone who would like to attend despite financial barriers.

The success of the 2016, 2017 and 2018 program has proven to us that this type of program is not only needed but very much wanted in our community. We have had applications from people from every walk of life and have tried to accommodate as many as possible. We will measure the success of the program in 2019 by the number of applications that come in requesting the tickets along with the success of our relationship building with other local community organizations that also help to serve anyone in financial need. Our previous experience already tells us that this type of program is highly valued and sought after in our area.
