Announcing the Make It Possible Fund!

PAF is excited to announce a new initiative: the Make It Possible fund (MIP).

The Make It Possible fund (MIP) is an initiative of Performing Arts Forum (PAF) designed to support people who are interested in working at PAF. In the spirit of redistribution and in an intentional, gradual movement toward equity, the fund gives explicit priority to those who are part of communities that have been historically discriminated against, oppressed, exploited, and/or excluded for colonial and neocolonial reasons. Coming to PAF with the support of the MIP means being part, by your presence and practice, of PAF's transformation.

Over the past year, PAF has already raised enough funds to support 50 nights at PAF. In the hopes of expanding and continuing the efforts of the MIP, we are asking for your support. Individuals and institutions are invited to donate to the MIP by making a one-time or recurring donation in a unit of days: 25€ supports one day, 175€ supports one week (7 days), and 700€ supports one month.

This covers accommodation, dinners as part of the collective cooking initiative, the possibility of using the PAF car as well as some transport costs — to be determined for each person.

You can contribute by clicking the link below, or making a cash donation next time you visit PAF:


To receive MIP support, send an email introducing yourself to, allowing at least two months’ notice before your intended visit. Kindly detail the support you would need to come work at PAF and the intended length of your stay. A rotating group of volunteers coordinating the fund will answer requests, allocating funds according to availability and capacities. Be reassured that we will respond to all inquiries in due time.

If you have friends who would be interested in either supporting or receiving support from the MIP, please spread the word!

We hope that all of you are finding pockets of optimism during these continually precarious times.

With warm greetings from PAF,
Claire, Daniela, Dimitri, Jagoda, Louise, Lyor, Mary, Roya, Sepideh, and Valentina
