In a media release, The Cultch announced a new initiative designed to help Vancouverites who are finding less money in their budgets for the arts due to our city’s rising housing costs.

With “Housing Crisis Prices”, The Cultch has set aside specific performances with reduced ticket prices for those “who are challenged by the growing unaffordability of living in Vancouver”.

“The arts challenge our perceptions, open our minds, and feed our souls,” says Cultch executive director, Heather Redfern in the release. “It’s our mission to be a hub for the community, and ensure that The Cultch and the arts are for everyone.”

Already offering free tickets to community organizations through its Cultch Connects Program, The Cultch’s Housing Crisis Prices is supported by Cultch donors and sponsors.

“We’re immensely grateful for our supporters who help us to bridge the gap between costs and ticket prices so we can provide access through initiatives like these,” says Redfern.

The reduced ticket prices are open to everyone, and will be publicly available to purchase from The Cultch website and box office.
