The International Festival of Arts & Ideas brings together the world’s performing artists and thought leaders each June in New Haven, CT. Dynamic programs feature some of the most influential dance, music, and theatre artists of our time.

For more than twenty years, the Festival has remained steadfast in its mission to bring together diverse and distinct communities through arts and ideas. 

As you probably know, our resources to pursue that mission are limited. Our ticket revenue only accounts for 8% of our total annual revenue. Public, foundation, and corporate dollars are vanishing quickly which means contributions from individuals are essential. In a time where so many are divided, I hope that you will join us in working to bring people together in a celebration of community. Your contribution will support the 2018 Festival and lay the groundwork for years to come.
