Contribute to BAX’s VISIONING FUND
As the weather warms and the season becomes greener, we at BAX are reflecting on the power and potentials that come with change. As BAX’s new Artistic Director and Executive Director, we are excited to bring our deep histories at BAX and our emergent visions to these shared leadership roles. This more collaborative and adaptive co-leadership structure holds space to personally invite folks inside.
That’s where you come in!
As we cultivate BAX’s fertile soil, we count on our network of communities, families and artists to sow the seeds that will sustain us as a space where a radically diverse range of artistic voices not only take root, but thrive.
What are the ways you can watch these seeds grow?
This coming season, we will be focusing on the “Exchange” in our name with initiatives both within our walls and beyond. Throughout the warm-weather season, for instance, you can join Paloma as she hosts Porch Time conversations on the front stoop of our building. You can also participate in public offerings under our re-envisioned Creating Space initiative or show up for some of our new intergenerational programming.
This past year at BAX we witnessed:
- hundreds of students embodying their creativity in classes and performances, including young artists creating their own work during our free YouthWorks program and teens from
- across the city coming together at our annual Teen Arts Conference
- the pilot of an anti-racist curation model created by ACRE (Artists Co-Creating Real Equity), a longtime BAX partner
- and, of course, groundbreaking new performances created by over three dozen resident artists at all stages of development
All of this and more happen in our bustling home here on 5th Avenue, and all in partnership with you. BAX depends heavily on support from our dear neighbors and community to continue to thrive. Our goal is to raise $20,000 by June 30, to close out our fiscal year and to seed a VISIONING FUND for the new season launching in the Fall.
As we close out the 28th season and welcome this new moment, we are thrilled you are here to help us seed this vision and witness it grow.
