BodyStories: Teresa Fellion & Middlebrook Arts Research + Residency Center GoFundMe
Donate today to have a direct impact on fostering a strong art community, not only within upstate New York, but beyond, including NYC-based, national, and international artists! Focused on equity and accessibility, we strive to break the barriers toward the practice and performance of art, providing a space where all are welcomed.
Our campaign has four goals:
Lower level renovation ($2,025)
The lower level of MAR+RC will hold 10-12 private guest bedrooms, an artist studio, kitchen amenities, bathrooms, and a lounge area. The renovation and construction of this level will expand the Center’s offerings to artists-in-residence and provide comfortable housing accommodations for multi-day visits.
Furnishment of individual bedrooms and bathroom amenities ($5,475)
When guests stay at MAR+RC, we want them to feel at home! All new private bedrooms will be furnished with one bed, a dresser, a nightstand with lamp, and door mirror. Each guest will also have access to additional lower-level bathroom facilities containing three showers and toilets. Bathrooms will be equipped with essential toiletries and towels.
Begin a scholarship fund AND fund for artist residencies! ($2,500)
A scholarship fund will help sponsor students with financial need to attend BodyStories classes, intensives, informal showings, and performance opportunities.
Our residency program funding is a fund will allow us to provide low-cost residency space so artists can have the time to develop their work, enhance creativity, and create meaningful dance and art.
