Book-It Empowers Voices
“Art, freedom and creativity will change society faster than politics.” — Victor Pinchuk, Ukrainian Philanthropist
These are unsettling times. It is more important than ever for us to stay connected and inspired to speak our minds. By choosing the works of literature that we adapt, and the ways we connect with our audiences, it’s our mission to stand up for our community – for all of you. We stand up for you in our work and now we ask – amid the politics and the noise – if you will also Stand Up for Book-It.
In the face of overwhelming need all around us, we must remind ourselves that the arts are equally critical to the health of a community.
In our 2017-18 season, we are taking our mission farther than ever -- programming a bigger season, forming new partnerships with local organizations, and launching new events for the Seattle community. We need your help to raise $115,000 to make next season possible.
An ambitious 2017-18 season
This is just a sample of what we have planned:
• a striking 5-show season
• providing first-rate arts education for over 60,000 K-12 students across Washington, including rural and underserved youth
• creative partnerships on our mainstage with Café Nordo and Young Audiences New York
• launching a new intergenerational spoken word festival called LISTEN UP, inspiring youth across Seattle to speak their minds
• create new community partnerships with organizations doing vital work in Seattle
• helping students develop 21st-century skills like critical thinking, imagination, and collaboration through our high school residency programs
• digging deeper into issues around our productions with our Beyond-the-Book events that connect patrons to important civic members
Your donations will pay for the artists and programming in Book-It's 2017-18 season.
