Membership

Membership

Artists across Canada join PWM to enrich and evolve their creative practice. We engage collaboratively in deep explorations of story, theatrical form and process. To meet the needs of artists with diverse backgrounds, practices and levels of experience, we offer three types of membership.

If you would like to support PWM but are not interested in membership, consider making a one-time or recurring donation. Our Collaborators and 365 Creators’ Club are a passionate community of supporters who wish to make an important contribution to the Canadian theatre landscape.

PWM memberships are valid for one year from the date of joining. All types of membership come with the following benefits:

  • Discounts to theatres
  • Voting privileges at the PWM Annual General Meeting
  • Reduced rates on rental of our rehearsal space
  • Opportunity to publicize your events in our monthly Newsflash
  • Invitation to PWM events, including public readings
