Over the last 30+ years I have provided free services in the
arts world. Everything from teaching
art, providing information to artists, research and development for other
companies, organizations & people, programming, and curating. All done
without receiving payment for any services rendered. Though I do not mind donating my services, realistically
this can become problematic for being able to maintain a level of fundamental survival. One cannot pay bills, mortgage, buy groceries,
pay insurance etc.
And if your response is, “ Well get a job”, the answer to
that is. I have a job. I have just been doing it for free. Often
times many other non-profits and individuals cannot afford the services but
desperately need help. I cannot turn my
back on them because they cannot afford it. I am humbly asking if you believe in the projects and services,
I have been providing the community for the last three decades, won’t you consider
contributing something to what I do, so I can continue to provide all the unique
services to those who cannot afford it?
