(Including donations outside of GoFundMe, we have raised over $100,000. We've amended our goal on this site to reflect what we hope for in remaining online giving.)
Poised to vacate our longtime home on a third-floor walk-up in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, we recently signed a 10-year lease for the organization's new site. Triskelion Arts will lead the charge as the first institution focused on the presentation of dance and theater in the Greenpoint area. The facility, slated to open in June, is a freestanding, two-story construction that will boast a large ground-floor theater that can also be used for rehearsal. It will also feature three dance studios on the second floor (one of which can be used as an informal showing space.) Improvements include increased audience capacity, higher ceilings, more restrooms, outdoor spaces, and wheelchair accessibility. This street-level location will provide heightened public visibility, benefiting the hundreds of artists presented in our theaters each year. Additionally, we'll have organizational autonomy in this unshared building as the only tenant on the property. Located at the corner of Calyer and Banker Streets, on a charming stretch of this up-and-coming neighborhood, the facility is just a few blocks from the waterfront and the G train.
The total cost to open the new Triskelion Arts is expected to ring up at approximately $500,000. While this is certainly a very large number for us, it is just a fraction of what many projects of similar scope might cost. But the best news of all is that we have already raised close to half of the funds needed through earned income, keen foresight, and informed negotiation.
With our lease in place, the plans drawn and contractors beginning work, the time has come that we must ask for YOUR help to raise the remaining $250,000 by summer's end.
Our growth over the last 14 years is proof of the power in numbers! Small gifts from the thousands of individuals we serve will see us through this transition. Without these generous and greatly appreciated contributions, we cannot succeed. If Triskelion has provided a positive experience for you as a studio renter, an audience member, a participant in our shows or festivals, a student or a teacher, please become a part of this exciting project. Our home is your home! If our spaces have ever played a role in your creative development or practice, please consider an investment in Triskelion's future. No amount is too small or too large!
