Mental Health Awareness

Let The Elephants Dance is an event created to help raise awareness of mental health issues, such as depression and anxiety. We have been proudly donating to both The Canadian Mental Health Association in Toronto and Kids Help Phone each year. The event has grown in just two short years, from a small, intimate theatre showcase and has now become a yearly fundraising gala.

Let The Elephants Dance is a safe place for artists to showcase their work, their stories, their heartbreak and most importantly: the battles they have won, to give hope to those still suffering. Our goal is to present the issues and triumphs over said issues through performance, without stigma. There is only encouragement, love and support at our events.

It is understood by us at Let the Elephants Dance, that everyone’s battles with mental health is both personal and yet a universal struggle. Our goal is that this event can demonstrate hope for the daily battle for those who struggle with their mental health, all while raising the needed funds for the above charities, so they can continue their essential services.


From our guest orators, to singers, poets, and dancers – we all come together to share a message of hope and understanding.

To this date we have successfully Donated over $18, 500.00 to mental health initiatives in Toronto ON.
