THE BIG END-OF-2020 GOAL: $15,000
THANK YOU to everyone who has donated to Red Eye so far this fall and winter! We loved seeing so many of you at THERE IS SOMETHING WE REALLY WANT TO TELL YOU, our first ever Zoom performance party and fundraiser, back in October. You blew past our $5,000 goal for that night and donated over $10,000 to Red Eye -- WOW, WOW, WOW. We are profoundly humbled and full of gratitude for this community!!
As we move toward the end of this wild year, we have stretched our fall/winter fundraising goal to $15,000. Every dollar will support independent performance-based artists as they explore, adapt, and share out their processes in the months of uncertainty ahead... and we can't wait to share some of the fruits of that labor with you in our 2021 New Works 4 Weeks Festival, happening ONLINE this June!
Thank you so much in advance for anything you're able to contribute. Remember, no gift is too small (or too large)! Every dollar counts.

SUPPORT RED EYE
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Red Eye postponed all of its 2020 events, including Theo Langason's WELCOME HOME//HOME EDITION, EARLY BIRD (in partnership with MOVO), and the NEW WORKS 4 WEEKS FESTIVAL (in partnership with In the Heart of the Beast Puppet & Mask Theatre).
Red Eye’s Artistic Directors made these decisions in conversation with all of the artists involved, and in deep consideration of the needs of their processes as well as the health of our community. We have remain committed to supporting these artists, including by paying out their artist fees in full; and we are continuing to work with them to develop their projects. Red Eye also is developing alternative programming for this time of social distancing; and we continue to move forward with efforts to secure and build out a new physical home, which will serve as a vibrant hub for contemporary performance in the Twin Cities once we are able to gather again. Make sure to sign up for our email list for updates!
If you are able, please consider making a donation to Red Eye as we strive to take good care of our community amidst the loss of ticket sales and changes in arts funding. Contributions can be made online at GiveMN.org or mailed to Red Eye Collaboration, PO Box 80666, Minneapolis, MN 55408.
Every dollar goes directly to supporting working artists and cultivating new forms of connection between artists, audiences, and ideas. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
