However — as with all grass-root organisations — we need help from the community and donors to keep our doors open in 2018. Any donation big or small will go to directly support the development of dance artists in Sydney and the people behind the scenes! ReadyMade Works provides an important space for the dance community. A place for creative collaboration, artform development and the ongoing valuing of dance as as a vital form of expression.
ReadyMade Works is a not-for-profit organisation that is run by a team of passionate artists who believe in the importance of dance and the moving body as crucial to expression — innovation and how we see ourselves. ReadyMade Works is seeking support from donors and lovers of dance to assist in the programs and ongoing operational costs to run the Studio space in Ultimo, that has been awarded through the City of Sydney’s accommodation Grants Program.
ReadyMade believes that great innovation and passion exists in the independent dance community and that dancers and dance makers by nature are incredibly adaptable, courageous and interested in new ways of thinking. So support ReadyMade in 2018 and you will be saying YES; dance is important and YES; Sydney needs a sustainable home for independent dance to provide consistent scaffolding to these wonderful artists.
Donations will be used to directly support the artists who use the ReadyMade Works space through keeping the studio doors open, supporting the role of our Studio Manager. You’ll also be supporting our Moving Ideas Residency Program that provides 5 artists time and space to develop their work with free space and a stipend of $1000 per week. There will be five residencies in 2018.
Thank you for your support!
