Paprika is helping to change the face of our cultural landscape. We are reimagining access to the arts and arts training, and building opportunities for young artists to develop their skills and thrive as future arts leaders.

As we enter our 18th Festival Season, we are more passionate than ever about our commitment to our core values of artistic development, youth leadership, accessibility, and community.

We take great pride in providing a creative, supportive, and accessible space for young and emerging artists to develop their craft, take risks, and discover new ways to share stories, and connect with their communities.

We hope you will join us in creating barrier-free opportunities for young people to access and participate in the arts; developing free programming for young artists to receive mentorship and hands-on arts education; and supporting a launchpad for professional careers in the arts and culture sector.

By donating to Paprika, you are joining a network of dedicated supporters who understand the importance of fostering creativity and leadership in young people and supporting the next generation of artists.

Every dollar counts and every donation is appreciated!
