BENEFITING: SPACE ON THE FARM
EVENT DATE: Dec 17, 2014
SPACE on Ryder Farm is an artist residency program housed on Ryder Farm, a working organic farm in Brewster, NY. SPACE supports artists by providing a workshop space singular in its ability to reinvigorate their spirit and work.
In four seasons, with the help of an army of inspired supporters, volunteers, and friends, SPACE has become a place where innovative artists, energetic activists, and critical collaborators do their most important work. We’ve hosted over 500 artists, started programs for NGO residents, held symposia on the intersection of creativity and activism, and nurtured 30 young professionals through our intern program. We've breathed life into Ryder Farm, creating an organic food program and working to restore its original 18th-century structures.
Every season at SPACE sees the creation of new and ambitious programming designed to expand our impact on the lives of artists and activists and on Ryder Farm itself. This year is no different. Our fifth season goals include:
- Initiating year-round and alumni programming
- Expanding our Creative Solutions Symposium
- Launching a capital campaign to fund the restoration of more of Ryder Farm’s historic structures. Improved structures mean more programming!
Ambitious programming goals necessitate ambitious fundraising goals. This year, we’re determined to raise $30,000 through our annual Crowdrise drive. With your help, we know we’ll hit it. Please support us in our fifth season (and beyond) by donating today.
We are a scrappy yet mighty organization. We have been able to support artists and activists and re-invigorate Ryder Farm these last four years because you and others like you have put your resources (big or small) behind us. You have said “Yes!” to SPACE’s grand vision: a home away from home for artists and activists on 129 acres of endangered farmland.
Please consider giving SPACE on Ryder Farm a gift this holiday season.
SPACE is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
