Well, we took our obligatory post-Give-to-the-Max-Day nap. Now we're alert, alive, and ready for the future! Before we get really rolling on our next project -- JUNE -- we want to take a moment to recap the big day.
You know that feeling when you cross a giant to-do off your list? When you achieve a life-goal? That’s how we feel about #SUSPACE. We've been able to help our community with the vital resource of securing a place to do their work.
Give to the Max Day is nigh, dear friends, and we at Savage Umbrella couldn’t be more happy about it. Not only is it a chance to give to the hundreds of deserving non-profits and schools in Minnesota, for us it’s the anniversary of winning the Super Golden Ticket. Whoa.
We decided the best thing to do with our extra $20,000 was to rent a space, though it was tempting to blow it all on ice cream. Thank goodness we didn’t do that, because it turns out that a lot of artists have benefited from using SPACE.
The mission of SPACE is to foster the creation of new work, to support the work of performing artists, and to facilitate community conversations. We wanted a chance to share our good fortune with the community, and so far, so good. Groups like Arab American Theatre Works, Place Base Productions, The Moving Company, Minnesota SnowJob, Theater Coup d’Etat and more have taken us up on renting SPACE, and it’s been wonderful hosting them.
So our wish for GTMD this year is to celebrate SPACE. It’s not just SU’s place. It’s for the artistic community.
