On August 19th, 2013, Theatre Alberta hosted a fundraiser and Fringe Forum to raise funds for Theatre Alberta programs and Alberta Arts Rebuild – a relief effort to support artists and arts organizations recovering from the 2013 floods. We are proud to announce that we raised nearly $2,000 during the event and through online donations.
