Help us raise money for contemporary art by dancing!


The Or Gallery relies on the generosity of our donors,  members and broader community to meet its budget needs year to year. You can help us out! Let's Dance is the fifth Or Gallery dance-a-thon fundraiser and we're sure this one will be the best.

It costs us about $685/day to operate. That may seem like a lot, but that number pays our rent, pays the artists who exhibit in our space (at fees higher than those set by CARFAC), pays speakers' fees, pays for artists' travel and accommodation, pays production costs including paint and equipment, pays our hardworking staff, pays for the books and texts we publish and more. We're hoping to raise enough to cover 10 days of operations with this fundraiser. This would be an immense help to the organization and will show our other funders that what they fund is important to you as well. Please consider donating today and/or signing up as a contestant in the dance-a-thon! 

Prizes are awarded based on pledges raised. Additional prizes will be awarded to teams that raise the most pledges, plus we'll be awarding some prizes on the night in question for time spent on the dance floor, style, costume and others! Get started today by clicking "+ Create a fundraising page" above or "Register to Dance" below!
