A generous donor has offered us $15,000 if we are able to match their donation by December 13. (For any amount above $15,000 all donations will be matched by half.
We know that these are desperate times, and that you and your dollars are pulled in many directions. We also believe that the visionary artists supported by Culture Push will be laying out survival templates, illuminating neglected stories, and keeping the flame of inclusive, exuberant culture alive in the coming months and years.
With your help we will support Fellows like Olaronke Akinmowo, whose Free Black Women's Library grew from the seed of an idea to a multi-borough platform for exchange and community around Black women's voices, or Sarah Dahnke, with Dances for Solidarity, a scheme that started as a what-if thought experiment on how to use dance practice to bring visibility to people in solitary confinement and now has two off-shoots in other cities and over 200 incarcerated correspondents and co-choreographers.
With your help we will be able to develop the Summit for Practical Utopias with the Finnish group YKON, slated for Fall 2017, working with a network of small organizations and individuals to share ideas on resilience and resistance in dystopian times.
$30,000 would double our annual income, and bring us to a whole new level. Think about that. We've been able to do what we've done so far on less than $30,000 a year. Imagine if we had twice that...
With YOUR help we will be able to expand the support we give to the people and ideas, and continue to bring challenging, boundary-pushing, and community-oriented work to life. Please donate, and send this message on to others.
**Donate $300 or more and you'll receive a free Culture Push Tote Bag!**
