The Jane Heyman Creative Collaborative Endowment Fund
For 20 years, Jane Heyman made an incredible contribution to the Theatre Arts Program, cooking up creative recipes for collaboration with the faculty, staff, and professional community to bring our students the finest theatre education in Canada.
Recent initiatives have brought our students together with international directors and Equity guest artists. This stew of creativity has proven an enormous benefit in opening our students’ perspectives to world theatre and true professionalism.
To continue this tradition, Jane has added the first ingredient to get things simmering: the initial donation to the Jane Heyman Creative Collaboration Endowment. This Endowment will enable the department to continue bringing guest artists to work with students—to infuse their learning with new flavours.
Help keep the creative juices flowing at 58! Please donate.
Remember, Langara College will match every dollar contributed to this campaign. This means your donation will be doubled.
If you are interested in making a donation to the program, please contact Shahin Virji or you can donate online.
