That’s one word we talk a lot about at CounterPULSE – home. Current and past artists who have come through our doors quote this word the most. Throughout our 20 years of growth we’ve kept this idea central to our work, and this month we ask you to support the Home Fund for Artists and help us raise $1,500 by March 31st.
CounterPULSE, and the ARC Program in particular constantly strives to push – push societal boundaries, push the artists to their highest potential, and push artists to push boundaries. -The Western Edition, 2012
This month, your contribution will support our Winter Artists in Residence, Miriam Wolodarski, Jennifer Chien, and Rowena Richie.
The Artist Residency and Commissioning (ARC) Program is designed to offer maximum support for experimentation and risk-taking artists by lifting many of the responsibilities associated with self-production. It provides space, administrative and technical support for local emerging and mid-career choreographers to create new works.
Since participating in ARC, artists have gone on to expand their work and present at Z Space, SOMArts, ODC Theater, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, as well as in New York, Russia, India, Germany, and more.
Your investment in the Home Fund will provide these artists with the freedom and unconditional support critical for them to take leaps in their work, for art to diversify and challenge our assumptions, and for communities to engage in the transformative power of cultural expression.
Thank you to our supporters this month!
