As of January 21, 2013 the resident artists of the Collingwood Arts Center have been issued 30 day notices, in the middle of the most brutal Winter the city of Toledo has seen in over thirty years. Many of the artists have been here for years, and know/have nowhere else to go. These are poor starving artists who have been living with subsidized rent so they can do their craft.
My goal is to raise funds to make their transition to a new place easier. Hopefully make their landing softer.
There are 28 residents that range all kinds of disciplines and ages.
The funds raised will go toward security deposits and such for new apartments, and to just give everyone in general a softer landing. If anyone has any questions about anything you can e-mail me at [email redacted].
