KXT CROSSROADS | WHERE ART + COMMUNITY MEET
At KXT we believe in community.
Since opening in 2015 KXT has hosted art exhibitions, panel events, music and dance, pop up parties, foyer meet ups... We've welcomed St James Choir, the Philippine Consul-General, the Zimbabwe minister for Truth and Justice, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and more. We've partnered with NOW, Cana Community, AAWC and international not for profit organisations
we're raised money and awareness for local organisations working in research and treatment for cancer; animal rescue and care; meals and assistance for local homeless; ACON; student support groups, orgs fighting human trafficking and working with the victims of trauma and war
we've invested heavily in youth with our weekly $20 for 20s program, our support for Playwave and our Step Up program. The KXTeethcutting program is an opportunity for recent grads and young artists to connect and showcase their work.
programming at KXT has lead the way in diversity, gender equity and representation. Since 2015 Open the Door has provided free tickets for those who can't afford to attend theatre, because we believe everyone has the right to art in their life.
in our three years we've curated and hosted three important festivals: INVISIBLE CIRCUS celebrating the work of women; STEP UP supporting the work of new artists and new companies; STORYTELLERS FESTIVAL showcasing playwrights and their work.
new plays have had their first life at KXT. companies have been born.
it has been a joy to partner with KX HOTEL to build a vibrant and culturally important corner in our changing community. We're in the heart of the cross, in the heart of the city. There's a lot of heart in KXT
