BENEFITING: SPACE ON THE FARM

EVENT DATE: Nov 21, 2013

THE STORY:

Founded in 2009, 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.

Our first three seasons on the farm have been incredible successes, thanks in no small part to our generous community. 

Please join us for our fourth season (and beyond) by donating this holiday season. This year we aim to raise $20,000 by December 20th.

In its first three seasons, SPACE has:

  • Hosted over 300 artists working on 95 projects
  • Created a resident writers group, The Working Farm
  • Restored two 18th-Century buildings for use as resident housing and workspace, built an outdoor stage, built a barn stage (with Rattlestick's help), and built a dock that allows residents access to Peach Lake
  • Created an organic food program that nourishes residents with farm-to-table fare
  • Debuted Sharing SPACE: a series that shares SPACE artists and their work with the community
  • Developed an intern program that has nutured 25 aspiring theater artists  

Generous support from people like you made this work possible.

THIRD SEASON HIGHLIGHTS:

June: We inaugurated our first resident writers group, The Working Farm. We hosted our first international company, Franco-American theater-makers Walter & Josephine. And Rattlestick Playwrights Theater gifted us a glorious new stage in our barn.

July: Rattlestick Playwrights Theater rehearsed three of Lucy Thurber’s Hill Town Plays, and Paines Plough became our second international company in residence.

August: We debuted our Sharing SPACE series highlighting SPACE artists Isaac Oliver, Jahn Sood, Miko and the Musket, and Woodshed Collective. While in residence for Strange Interlude with Transport Group, David Greenspan wound one of the homestead’s old clocks. We also hosted our first NGO residency, providing workspace for the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation.

September: We hosted work on nineteen new plays. The Working Farm playwrights and our community brought the season home with a delectable and enjoyable roving dinner-reading series, featuring snippets of The Working Farm writers' plays presented alongside Naomi Shafer's tasty food in many locations around the farm.

FOURTH SEASON GOALS:

NEW months of operation! More months on the farm means more opportunities for artists to create new work and more opportunities to share that new work with community near and far. 

NEW programming! We are debuting new programs for SPACE artists to share their work with the New York theater and surrounding Brewster communities.

NEW structures! We’ve acquired another Ryder Farm structure. This new-to-SPACE structure will increase our capacity, lengthen our season, and broaden our resident community. We’ll spend this winter and spring like we often do, restoring, renovating, and improving—to make this new-to-SPACE structure a truly SPACE space in time for summer 2014. 

To make our vision for SPACE’s fourth season a reality, we need your help. Please consider giving SPACE a gift this holiday season.Your generous support allows SPACE on Ryder Farm to support hundreds of artists and their work; and create, improve, and sustain our physical spaces. We simply couldn’t do what we do without you. 

If you give $25 or more to our campaign you will receive a complimentary ticket to SPACE in the City: Holiday Edition, our holiday party to celebrate: another successful season on the farm, our Crowdrise campaign, and all that awaits us in 2014. 

SPACE is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. All donations are fully tax-deductible. 

Thank you for considering a gift to SPACE on Ryder Farm.

Hope to see you on the farm!
