Support Riverbed Reading Series!

The arts allow us to bridge barriers and come together through creativity and curiosity. We are honoured that so many of you were able to help keep us going over the last three seasons and we hope you may continue to support our series, whether through a few dollars or a few dozen.

We believe that artists deserve to be paid for their work. All funds raised through this fundraiser will go directly to our performers. Any extras will go towards the curatorial honorariums and the administrative costs affiliated with running a hybrid event series such as ours.

We are excited to continue bringing you deeply curative iterations every quarter, and our fourth season has much in store for you!



Riverbed Reading Series is co-curated by Ellen Chang-Richardson, nina jane drystek, Joseph Mathieu & Rachel Weldon. We are driven by the belief that the artistic spheres are connected; and aim to be an inclusive, experimental gathering space at the intersection of literature, music and performance.

We look forward to welcoming everyone, whether in person or online, to our contemporary cabaret. Thank you for taking the time to learn about Riverbed and for contributing if you are able. No matter where you go after this, we hope you will continue to support artists and organizers, wherever you may be.
