Gold Saucer Studio is creating a sustainable space for artists to present work

The Gold Saucer Studio is a space for emerging artists to rehearse and present in Vancouver, BC. This campaign is an experiment to crowd source operating funds for the studio. These funds will allow for the Gold Saucer to better support our community.

Currently, the Gold Saucer consists of a 1000sqft dance studio space. In July 2016, we are expanding to include an upstairs office space. This will allow the current space to be fully utilized for rehearsals, screenings, and showings.



With proper funding, we will allow artists to book Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings at the Gold Saucer to present work FREE OF CHARGE. All the show proceeds will go directly to the presenting artists. We want to create a situation where artists can show work without fuss and financial risk and get cash.

The ticket prices for these shows will be capped at $20 and always be "Pay What You Can."

In addition to offering free venue space, after reaching certain funding goals, the Gold Saucer Studio would like to provide artists with free video documentation. This documentation will be extremely valuable to artists who seek to submit works abroad, to competitions or festivals, and apply for future arts funding.

We are looking to gather a group of patrons to give what they can per month to make this happen. Any contribution you make will allow us to make this plan possible.



Venues are difficult in Vancouver. There is a lack of small to mid-sized venues. We are looking to support experimental performing arts that may not be shown in other venues. We want these performances to be ARTIST DRIVEN and not curator/presenter driven. We will not force artists into a theme or prescribe their outcome. We want to facilitate their impulse and work and allow them to show it, whenever there is a space available.

We got very lucky with the Gold Saucer and its current space. With our upcoming expansion, we want to make it into something really cool. If you can, and are interested, help us make this possible! Allow us to create free venue space and continue our affordable rehearsal rental rates!

We can believe you'd do this, but if you did, thank you, omg. You get everything mentioned above. We will also make you a Cait Sith (FFVII) crown to wear anytime you are at the Saucer. Also, if you want, you can have Remy's beloved Final Fantasy XIV character. It's alright, only maxed out level on one class, but he really loves it and it will hurt him, and that's kind of funny.
