From volunteer support to media coverage, institutional partnerships to donations and corporate sponsorships, nothing happens without the support of our community. Your support empowers leaders, rising talent, and citizens from your community to create a place where the best of South Asian culture can be expressed and experienced.


They say building a career is all about who you know, and the best way to meet people is by volunteering for 5X.

Volunteering at 5X is an incredible way to make lifelong friendships, creative partnerships, and to be a part of shaping culture instead of just consuming it. Our past volunteers have gone on to become some of the most influential and impactful members of the community- working on projects like the Jagmeet Singh’s campaign, the Juno Awards, international music and film festivals and so much more.



We all know what it’s like being excluded from the conversation. 5X is at its core, one giant conversation for the global South Asian diaspora to come together and express ourselves, and your financial support is critical to keeping that conversation accessible and inclusive.

When it comes to cultural festivals, minority communities often have to choose between relevance, quality, and accessibility. Supporting 5X means that youth and families in British Columbia can get all three, in many cases for the first time in their lives.



Join the team and show that  “South Asian” and “creative” can go together.

Send us your CV and resume anyways to let us know what you’d like to do!
