Event History

Established in 2012, Passion to Perform is a competition with a mandate to foster the important contributions art makes to vibrant communities. The objective, since the beginning, has been to support and encourage emerging artists from around the world and develop a world-class collection of work representing these artists.

What Makes this event different?

Passion to Perform is an initiative of Yamana Gold, a leading gold producer with operations and properties throughout the Americas that integrates a commitment to sustainability and stakeholder engagement best practices in all its business activities. This commitment complements a performance-based culture driven by an entrepreneurial passion that is mirrored in the passion and commitment demonstrated by many emerging artists. Pieces of art that become part of the permanent Passion To Perform collection may be displayed in Yamana Gold’s offices, thereby visually communicating a sense of performance to employees and visitors alike.
