ASP MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION
Artists are being pushed out of Boston, and the ones who do manage to stay are fighting the high cost of both living and studio space. These artists need moral support and affordable exhibition and performance space, as well as social, learning and spiritual development space.
The ASP supports local artists with space for productions, exhibits and social events, and takes a Do-it-Yourself approach by providing artists with a process that guides and teaches them to plan promote and stage their own productions. The ASP also provides local artists with a place to meet discuss, learn and do something about other issues that effect them such as race and gender issues, access to grants, equipment and supplies, etc.
ASP objectives are to provide performing and visual artists with:
-- a process for staging their own productions and exhibitions from start to finish.The ASP is also designed to provide the people of Boston with a place to see, hear and have transformational arts experiences with the performing and visual artists from their own community in a drug, alcohol and smoke free environment that reflects community harmony, creativity and goodwill.
-- a highly visible and accessible platform for presenting their art.
-- a place to cross-pollinate ideas with other artists and people who support the arts.
