ABOUT THE KHYBER CENTRE FOR THE ARTS:

We are a not-for-profit charitable organization that pays fees to artists according to CARFAC standards in our primary program.
You can choose to make a donation that broadly supports all programs or select a specific avenue of public programming from out of the following:
Visual Art Exhibitions – The Khyber publicly presents work of all mediums, which includes performance, painting, drawing, photography, video, audio and sculpture. A minimum of 3 month-long exhibitions of local, national and international artwork occur each year, not including pop-up short scale and membership exhibitions. Your support will go towards artist fees for exhibiting, presenting public talks and/or workshops, artwork transportation, artist travel, publicity and outreach, installation and gallery material costs.
Artist Residencies – The Khyber offers artist residencies which run 1-3 months, as well as weeklong open studios for artists. The residencies and studio program include 24-hour studio access and all include public presentations. Your support will go towards artist fees associated with public talks or workshops and the maintenance of studio materials.
Art Festival – The Khyber presents an annual 4-day festival of contemporary visual art called ART IN FEST alongside programming for the OBEY Convention. Your support will go directly to artist fees for exhibiting and presenting public talks and/or workshops, artwork transportation, artist travel, publicity and outreach, installation and material costs.
Community Events – The Khyber puts on public concerts, gallery pop-ups, workshops, screenings and performances by our membership and/or by community driven organization partners over 60 times per year. Your support will go towards gallery and facility maintenance and repairs or the purchase of new equipment.
Youth Programs – Your support will go towards the development of workshops and art events specifically for youth, as well as children and adult collaboration.
For all donations $20 or higher you will receive a Khyber Membership, which allows you to vote on important issues at general meetings, sell your art items in the Khyber Shop, the option to receive a direct e-newsletter with exhibition invitations, eligibility to utilize gallery facilities, Khyber archives or space to propose events.
