We are Fundraising!

SUPPORT DIRTSTAR:  http://www.indiegogo.com/Take-Root-Dirtstar-2011 

Yesterday evening we passed the $1,200 mark towards our goal of $3,000!!! WOW!  A major thank you goes out to all those awesome contributors!!!  I know that everywhere we look, folks are fundraising.  All are worthy causes, as many important things are underfunded in the face of massive military spending and prison industrial expansion.  Queer Sustainable Art needs your help, too!  This sum of $3,000 will go directly to a bunch of queer artists who are showcased at the show, support our ongoing workshops, pay for permits for our show, and let us offer it all to the community for free as much as possible!

Lots of love, 
Amar/a, m.a. brooks, Caitlin, Lex, and Arrow

Dirtstar 2011:  Take Root will make this my third and final year of involvement with Dirtstar.  Ami and a few other friends sprouted Dirtstar in 2008, as part of the National Queer Arts Festival (NQAF).  This year, we are still showcased in NQAF, but Dirtstar has grown from a one-evening event into a two month long Arts Residency at the Tenderloin National Forest.  During these two months, we will feature visual arts shows, performance events, art/sustainability workshops, and queer/history bike tours around San Francisco. We are pressed to raise funds to compensate our featured visual and performing artists and execute the best event ever.  It is sure to be an incredible residency, and for those of you in the SF Bay Area and/or visiting in May/June, we hope you can come by and check out one of our events.  We will be offering events free whenever possible, and your donations help us sustain free events.
