Radical Theatre for a New Generation

MATCH US.

WE SELF-FUNDED $4,000 TO CREATE OUR FIRST SHOW: ANTIDOTES OF THE HEART.
HELP US RAISE ANOTHER $4K FOR A WHOLE NEW SHOW, NEXT SEASON!

WHERE DID THE ORIGINAL $4K COME FROM?
ART RAT FOUNDER ROSE KIM IS 24 YEARS OLD, AND WORKS A FULL-TIME OFFICE JOB. OFF THE CLOCK AND IN BETWEEN RUNNING THE ART RAT VEHICLE, SHE WORKED FOUR MORE JOBS. IT'S NOT A MAGICAL STORY. THERE WAS NO FAIRY GODMOTHER. SHE JUST WORKED HER ASS OFF TO SAVE UP A BUDGET THAT COULD SUPPORT ARTISTS WHILE THEY WORKED.

MILESTONES ACHIEVED WITH THE FIRST $4K: 
. Every company member could receive a $300/month stipend.
. Commission a writer to publish our first piece of dramaturgy: bit.ly/walterforartrat
. Travel expenses for our very first tour, to UC DAVIS, NOV 24TH.
. Four shows in December at a warehouse studio space in Anaheim, CA.

HELP US DO THIS AGAIN. 

OUR VALUES:
.  decolonizing theatre for a new generation audience
. connecting independent, marginalized creatives
. more POC spaces
. process first
. energy, to give and receive and exchange
. raw, vulnerable ferocious art-making
. "if it's inaccessible to the poor, it's neither radical or revolutionary"
. finding a way to an ethical relationship between money and art
. the embodiment of all these things : to walk the mfkn talk. 

WE SEEK TO BE A HYBRID SELF-FUNDED AND COMMUNITY-SPONSORED VEHICLE.
WHATEVER WE DON'T MEET IN OUR GOALS WITH OUR COMMUNITY,
WE'LL WORK OUR ASSES OFF AGAIN TO MAKE UP FOR IT.
AND YOU CAN BET YOUR OWN BOTTOMS WE'RE GOING TO DO A SECOND SEASON, NO MATTER WHAT.

EVERY SPONSOR (DONOR! THAT'S YOU? WINK WINK) WILL RECEIVE A UNIQUE THANK YOU PARCEL IN THE MAIL, FROM ONE OF OUR COMPANY MEMBERS TO YOU.  PLEASE LEAVE YOUR E-MAIL OR PHONE NUMBER SO YOU CAN BE CONTACTED FOR YOUR MAILING ADDRESS!!!!!

CONSIDER SHARING US ON YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA.
THE PPL WHO TRUST YOU MIGHT FUCK WITH US TOO.
HELP CONNECT US TO YOUR PEOPLE,
HELP US GROW THE PEOPLE AND PLACES WE CAN GO, SEE, AND BE SEEN BY.
