CHINOOK SERIES IS WHEREBIG IDEAS & EXCITING PERFORMANCES COME TO PLAY

It started as a spark of an idea in the dead of winter…

…a magical little ember coaxed into flame by warm hands and open hearts and the bellowing breath of creative change we lovingly call a Chinook.

Together, we are endeavouring to manifest the future of creative collaboration. Chinook Series aims to foster a truly integrated, inclusive, and accessible community of artists and audiences who thrive on experiment and risk; artists and audiences who crave the chatter between performances as much as they honour the process, the big a-ha! moment, the curtain going up.

Because it’s the in-between that revolutionizes the artistic landscape. The big coming together is the thing. And this is the start of something big.

Now five years strong, Chinook Series strives to thoughtfully curate collisions between artists and audiences to deliver 11 days of stirring contemporary performances, workshops, and salons all under one roof. Every winter, we kick open the doors to artists and audiences from across the street and around the world. Chinook Series invites you to interact with what’s now, explore what’s next, and inspire the not-yet-but-one-day-soon.
