    We need you.

    Help us make something truly counter-cultural, celebratory, and healing in this moment of national crisis and division. 

    This week only! Donate to the
    2018 LALA Festival to make your gift count double. Thanks to a $2500 matching funds commitment by an anonymous donor, you can support twice as much art!

    One-of-a-kind gathering of artists.

    Your gift directly supports a group of boundary-pushing performance artists of color, queer artists, and artists with disabilities interested in working together to build a healthier, more just, and more inclusive national performance community. The 2018 LALA Festival is bringing together 20+ performance makers, workshop leaders, and speakers along with dozens of cast members and a top-notch theater crew–nearly 40 artists in total–to share their ideas, their artistic process, and, of course, their work.
