What is Chinook Series?

Chinook Series thoughtfully curates 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 invites you to interact with what’s now, explore what’s next, and inspire the not-yet-but-one-day-soon.

Chinook is powered by:

Tell me more about your Offer What You Will program.

We believe art is an exchange, and we believe everyone has something to contribute. Offer What You Will tickets are available for every performance at Chinook Series. You may offer any dollar amount you’re able to contribute, or you can offer other non-monetary ways of showing respect and mutual investment, such as tobacco, your own art, or a donation you feel the artist(s) will benefit from. Offer What You Will tickets are available in person at the Box Office on the day of the performance. No offer will be refused, and no one will be turned away.
