Why is #MyArtsCommunity important?
#MyArtsCommunity campaign is a grassroots initiative fueled by the power of our community, for our own community! Through our friends, family, neighbors, and social networks, our goal is to support our own community’s ability to present and support artists connected to our neighborhood. With the new administration threatening to cut all federal funding for the arts, this is more important than ever. Artists are here to shed light on the important issues communities face today. Artists bring communities together, drive local economy, encourages creativity and diversity, promote education, and challenges important issues like hatred, racism, sexism, anti-semitism, and more.
This campaign is also an opportunity for us to invest in our community by empowering them with community organizing and fundraising skills!
$10 for 10 days? Why not ask for more?
Our goal for this campaign is to reach as many people as possible, and to empower them to give. We wanted to make sure to include everyone, and illustrate the importance of a communal effort. Every donation counts, no matter how big or how small. If 100 people share this message with 10 people and everyone gives $10, that’s already $10,000!
Where does this funding go?
This funding goes towards supporting artists in various ways:
- Providing arts materials for visual artists
- Providing rehearsal space for music, dance, and theatre artists
- Supporting Harlem Arts Festival’s all-volunteer staff
- Funding events for artists to showcase their work in their own community
