TO THE PEOPLE THAT MAKE BINDLESTIFF HAPPEN
There are tons of things happenning at the
theater creativley,(what else is new), but today
we find ourselves in a very different dynamic.
This is a plea from the building itself.
Bindlestiff's future existence is in jeopardy.
$11,000.00 needs to be raised by December 15th.
If this doesn't happen, there is a potential for
SF redev to pull their commitment to the
construction of the future space.
This is the unfortunate position we're currently
in. We're all connected to each other in large
part because of the existence of this space.
Without it, we'll still be artist for sure, but
without a base to concentrate the collective
energies. THIS IS A CALL TO ALL OF THE ARTISTS,
PATRONS, AND ANYONE WHO'S EVER EXCHANGED ENERGY
WITH THE SPACE.
This is a black and white issue. BINDLESTIFF
WILL BE CLOSED if something doesn't happen. If
you've reserved any participation for the
time 'when it mattered,' it matters now. If we
don't raise this money, the effort for physical
space will be nullified.
Before you decide, understand that Bindlestiff
is now an institution that's been talked about
world wide. There are other fil-am centered
artistic efforts out there, BUT THEY DON'T HAVE
Over the next couple months, various
performances and events have been scheduled to
help raise the money. If you wish to help out or
plan an event, please contact:
