COVID-19 SUPPORT: DONATE 1 HOUR OF YOUR WAGE
Can you afford to donate 1 hour of your wage per month to help us navigate the ongoing and unfolding impact of covid-19 on our studios?
200 people donating 1 hour of their wage each a month would keep us.
During 2020 our studios were closed for 7 months. While closed we have not asked members to pay their studio membership fees. This has continued into 2021, meaning we have had little to no income for 9 months out of the past 12, and this looks like it will continue for most of 2021.
Even though our physical building is closed, we are still working and have been working long hours since last March to try and figure everything out. We are exploring new ways of supporting artists and reimagining what a community focused studio can be going forward. We need a bit of help to do this to keep us on our feet until it’s safe again for artists and audiences to return.
We just need to keep our heads above water for 2021, keep our artists supported and engaged and hold out for 2022. We have stripped our hours right back to the bare minimum and calculated that 200 hours per month would keep us going.
If you have a full time or salaried job, love art and what we do, please consider donating 1 hour of your wage to us for 2021.
To everyone that supported us through 2020, thank you so so much, you provided us with a loving safety blanket that we really needed.
