In our first year, we took a poet's collection and turned it into an immersive installation complete with music, couture, and an indoor forest; staged a live, in-studio critique of a record in progress with musicologists and New York Magazine critics; put New York City Ballet in a loft in Red Hook; and created an experimental dinner party where everything was in a state of (delicious) decay.

We've got more magic planned for 2017, and we need your help to make it happen. We've set a fundraising goal of $5000 to afford us a slightly-more-than-shoestring budget to cover four events, ancillary programming, and paying our collaborators. A gift of any amount would go a long way towards that goal, and your contribution will be met with song, dance, and deep gratitude. (Bonus: A donation of $50 or more includes a free Bellwether membership!) We'd also like to remind you that generosity is sexy, and by the way, that shirt looks great on you.
