We are letting you know via our Little Artshram webpage and Facebook page—-rather than a crowdfunding/sourcing method that your support IS NEEDED!
We’re asking 250 of our community members and friends to contribute $20 each, we would be able to honestly take care of the costs of this 24th annual community event.
Here’s the breakdown of our budget:
Insurance & permits= $1500.00,
Parade-building materials and expenses $1500.00 (give or take–depending on how much “stuff” we can glean and search out),
Space rental = $700 (To house and host our guest artist, for his four-week stay.)
Parade artist/crew stipends, of $2500.00, (For the nine (9) weeks, over 600 hours, of heart-mind-hands-on work of designing and setting up a creative space to invite our community to join us in building it.)
A total of numbers of greenbacks needed: $6,200.00.
So far, we’ve received donations of: $1,250.00.
