We operate by using the money that comes in from ticket sales. The profits first go towards paying the venue (sometimes this can be up to $175 per show).
Then, we split the remaining money between curators and artists. The amount that artists get paid varies so much! That’s why we need your help to start consistently paying artists. Our goal is to pay each artist at least $50 per show. This threshold is always met when shows take place at Elastic Arts, as they guarantee payment to artists for all performances. Any extra money from ticket sales is then distributed to the artists and curators.
A little bit goes a long way. Your donation is much appreciated!
