Accessible PuSh

At the core of the PuSh Festival’s values are engagement, inclusivity and accessibility—transformative performing arts experiences provided to as many and varied audiences as possible.

Through our Festival performances and outreach programs, we aim to connect with members of various communities across the Lower Mainland, be they self-identified groups of like-minded individuals or those with a vested interest in the themes and issues of the work. Here are some of the initiatives we’ve developed to invite people to participate in PuSh, for free or at reduced ticket prices.

For more information or to book tickets for your group, contact Accessible PuSh Coordinator Linnea Strom: access@pushfestival.ca, 604.605.8284 ext 204
