THE HUBBARD COLLECTIVE
Please support The Hubbard Collective!
The Hubbard Collective, founded by artistic director Irishia Hubbard, is a modern fusion dance company based in Southern California. With our diverse cast and multidisciplinary aesthetic, we are able to produce works that engage audiences from all walks of life. From complex political concert pieces to high energy commercial jazz performances, we strive to showcase our range and ability to cross between multiple dance forms. Our mission is to create pieces that challenge the audience’s perception of dance by combining strong musicality, narrative, and performance. We aim to support and amplify the voices of all artists by creating programs, events, and performances that give artists a platform to express themselves.
Our organization currently runs two other programs: By Artists for Artists & Black Artists Matter. The mission of the By Artists for Artists program is to provide financial support to artists, businesses, and nonprofit organizations who have been affected by Covid-19. The mission of the Black Artists Matter program is to create a space where black art is celebrated by featuring weekly artists, hosting art shows, and by providing virtual discussions on black-centered topics.
We are currently seeking support for our 2021 artist showcase, The Gift of Presence. In this virtual showcase, we will be featuring the work of several BIPOC artists through various mediums: dance, visual art, poetry,and more.
Here are few ways you can assist in sustaining our organization:
- Recurring Donations
- Sponsoring an Artist
- Attending our monthly BAFA classes, workshops, and events
- Spreading the word about our work
Thank you for your support! We look forward to deepening our connection with you and the rest of our community. Find more Information at www.thehubbardcollective.com
