How many people does it take to create a home?
Hint: It's a lot.
Le Mondo, an artist-owned hub for live arts and performance in Baltimore, is unfolding steadily over on Howard Street. Since last year, we've been in talks with the city to buy three derelict buildings on the 400 block of Howard Street downtown. Now, we are embarking upon our first fundraising milestone: $75,000 this summer.
These funds will: allow us to secure rights to the buildings, get into them, and begin development on our first space now.
But how will we do it?! Well...If you feel creating a artist-owned home for live arts is a crucial project for the face of arts and culture development of Baltimore, we urge you to lend a hand and a couple of dollars.
We received a matching pledge of $25,000 if we can raise as much by the end of this month so time is of essence! Help us kick this off right as we raise $25,000 by June 30!
Wanna level up? You can also pledge to raise funds for Le Mondo yourself. Click "Fundraise for This Campaign" and set up a profile and goal amount. It's a great way to contribute if you don't have a lot to spare yourself.
