Elevate the Arts in New Westminster – Donate Today!

When you make a donation to Arts New West, you’re not just supporting the arts — you’re making our community a more healthy and vibrant place for everyone.

Art changes lives, and Arts New West is proud to make it happen.

For us, that means we:

  • give barrier free access to the arts through many of our programs including Queen's Park Arts Festival, Poetry in the Park, Queen's Park Concert Series, Expressions of Reclamation Series, and New West Cultural Crawl.  Through these events, the public will experience visual arts, music, theatre, crafting, dance and more, leaving an impression that lasts a lifetime;
  • encourage local artists to become self-sustaining by giving them opportunities to share, show, sell and perform their work. These opportunities are provided by New West Craft markets, New West Cultural Crawl, and exhibitions. We believe that artists need to be compensated for their work, and as such, provide artist fees and honorariums wherever possible; and
  • give local artists a chance for feedback and mentorship, enabling them to advance in their artistic and career development.

Donate today, and help us to build an even better community with the arts at its heart.

What can my monthly donation do?

  • Your $25 per month donation ensures our arts programming gets into the community where it’s needed the most.
  • Your $50 per month donation gives artists the opportunity to present to their community through artist talks and workshops at The Gallery at Queen’s Park and the Anvil Centre Community Art Gallery.
  • Your $100 per month donation provides artists honorariums for our summer music programming across New Westminster.
