do u live in manhattan?
we do not have 'very few' venues
for experimental work
why do people think that?
and none of them (till now) charged to submit work
hmnn i wonder why that would be???

who is using sarcasm now
and not answering my question
what a surprise u r adam (sarcasm)
such levels of discourse (sarcasm)

so the 6th and b garden annually gets grants
fr: sources that do not specify free events to the community
we also do fundraising
(selling t shirts/hats + other stuff - that makes alot of money actually)
we as a non profit do not charge for our events
specifically and only because because because
it would marginalize people in our community
ie people - people that are too poor to pay for events such as ours
it is clear to me why we engage/enact such ideology
i am sorry it is not clear to you why i am not supportive
of a venue that doesn't see it's misstep in this regard
- and while we are there -
susan's activity of not supporting a venue as an act of 'protest'
but never publicly 'complaining' about it's activity
is certainly a way of 'dealing' with such problems
however it is not the only way and it is not a way i am comfortable with
nor do i think such activity is effective for change
