New Works

We're running a special campaign until the end of February 2024 to support the development of Transport.

Last year, your donations allowed us to feature over 100 emerging and established artists of diverse backgrounds, abilities, and artistic disciplines. This year, we're asking you to help us do that again. 


In 2024 We Will Develop





An operatic double bill: Transport

3 new

multidisciplinary plays

Reimagining "The Smallest Sound, in the Smallest Space"

Workshops to develop the next "MIXT: A Living Gallery"

Other Ways To Give

Please note that we collect donations through Fractured Atlas, our 501(c)3 Fiscal Sponsor. This allows your donation to be tax-deductible, but they also take about 8% for their services. If you don't care about the tax deduction, we have a few ways for you to donate below! 


Venmo or Zelle

Paper Check

If you’d like to support us via check, they should be made payable to "Sydney Anderson dba The Why Collective'' and, if desired, the project title of your choice, in the memo line.


Checks should be mailed to:

The Why Collective 

8402 Slayton Settlement Road

Gasport, NY 14067

Non-Monetary Giving

We recognize that not everyone is in a position to donate money. (Like, we really get it. We are artists living in NYC.) We also recognize that there are so many other ways to give, and those gifts of time, lodging, food, and encouragement mean the world to us. 

Email us at if you can offer support in any of the following ways this season:

- Donating food for artists on long rehearsal days

- Offering gift cards for wellness services for our artists (massage, etc.)

- Offering childcare for artists with children during evening rehearsals.

- Offering transportation of artists, props, instruments, etc.
