At 5X, we see ourselves as the beating heart of our community. We are a grassroots organization — helping artists further refine their craft and making art a full-time job, financially supporting artists and creatives, actively fight against discrimination and prejudice, and creating more opportunities for South Asians and people of colour to work in arts and culture roles.
Our festival and year round initiatives are only possible because of our community. Please consider supporting us through a tax-deductible donation or sponsorship.
