We believe in the power of the Festival experience to spark curiosity and creativity, fuel dialogue and exchange and foster a sense of connection and community. To mark our 20th anniversary, we’re launching the Live the Experience Fund that will provide tickets for local schools and community groups to attend KCFF and live the experience first hand.


Live the Experience invites kids, newcomers, and people across the city to participate fully at the Festival.  Increased access to and participation in the arts creates happy and healthy people and vibrant communities and fosters a sense of belonging, connection, and shared experience.


With your support, the Live the Experience Fund is one of the ways we can work together to ensure access to the Festival for those who might otherwise not have the chance to attend. Charitable donations to the Live the Experience Fund have immediate, direct impact in time for the 2020 Festival.

To support the Live the Experience Fund, please visit our CanadaHelps page to donate with your debit or credit card. CanadaHelps is totally secure and will issue your tax-receipt on the spot.
