Light Industry just launched its summer fundraising campaign!
--- Since launching in March 2008, Light Industry has brought you over 60 shows at our space in Sunset Park, not to mention a five-day marathon of free events at X-initiative in June 2009. We've presented works by hundreds of artists during this time through our regular series of screenings, lectures, discussions and live performances. Aided by our band of tireless interns as well as the generous in-kind support of Industry City, so far we've been able to produce more than a year of weekly programs funded largely by ticket sales. This week we launched our first fundraising campaign for the Summer of 2009, aiming to raise $10,000 by the end of August. Additional resources will allow us to reach our goals of expanding our modest operating budget, supporting more travel for out-of-town guests, and increasing our fees for artists and curators. We proudly run Light Industry on a lean, no-nonsense budget, so this means that donations of any size can make a considerable impact. All contributions are tax-deductible, and any individual who donates $100 or more will receive a very special perk: free admission to all Light Industry shows for a year!
