Innovative Performance Initiative

Support the transformation of everyday community spaces into remarkable theatrical experiences

Support Innovative Performances

Taking audiences on a journey through the landscape of remarkable theatrical experiences is a hallmark of Purdue Convocations. The Innovative Performance Initiative empowers us to bring new and engaging artists to our stages that stretch the imagination and boundaries of audience members of all ages.

The Innovative Performance Initiative brings together Friends of Convos who believe in the intrinsic power of inspired art forms. Sustained support will make this initiative a success and help Convos educate and expand our audience members interested in imaginative innovation across all genres.

Join us to bring more experimental performances and unique artists to Purdue. GIVE TODAY
