We are fortunate enough to be inheriting Zephyr Community Art Studio Space on the Southside. Big Shout out to Alysha Shaw! Our New Community Arts Building will benefit the Santa Fe Southside population, focusing on servicing Immigrant, Native, P.O.C and Queer Identified individuals and meeting Art and Community needs. All Are Welcome to Participate in A Plethora of Free and Low Cost Art Workshops and Events. Alas De Agua Art Collective is a grassroots organization that has been servicing Santa Fe for 3 years now thanks to seed money from the Kindle Project and more recently Still Points Fund. Thanks to organizations such as Youthworks, we have had temporary homes. We have existed as other entities in Santa Fe for 10 years. Now that we have managed to attain a rental unit we are expanding our services and need community support to provide sustainable community arts on Airport Road, currently the only service of its kind on the Southside.
Will go towards our 2 year lease agreement along with general maintenance, office and art furniture, art supplies
Will go towards funding Immigrant, Native, P.O.C. and Queer Artist to run Aftershool, Art night workshops, Open Mics, Group and Solo Shows and other community events servicing over 1,000 participants throughout the year
Will go towards funding our full time, multi hat wearing executive director, program coordinator, social media, co-conspirator, "official nudger" and community artist Israel Haros
The previous years have been generously funded by seed money from Kindle Project which allotted for for community outreach, program coordination, art supplies and artists workshops. Also Community donations private and public. People Power has sustained us and will continue to do so. Out of sheer love Israel Haros has put countless of volunteer hours to push this project forward. Along with that many volunteer hours from many of the Alas De Agua Art Collective Members and Volunteers like you. . Now the time has come to make this project a sustainable project for our Southside Families and Santa Fe community at large for those that have bared witness to what Alas De Agua Art Collective has brought. We are ushering in the next ten years of Community Arts on the Southside by creating sustainable budgets to continue to bring Art, Social Change, Healing and Inspiration. Art Saves Lives. If we meet our funding goals we can be open for several days in the week and catering to over 1,000 participants for the year. We are Creating Community Arts by Building with Community Members have lived here and have personal stake and roots to build here. This is how we approach this. These $40,000 will go along way in implementing effective arts program without overhead cost. Our Fiscal Sponsors are Santa Fe Dreamers Project. All funds go there to insure all donations are tax deductible and properly managed. Then the bulk of funds are given directly to Artists to create projects. We believe in the models provided by The Kindle Project that go towards direct action, giving funds directly to Artists. Hence why our limited budge can go an extremely long way.
