It takes more volunteers than bones in the human body to produce the Annual BareBones Halloween Puppet Extravaganza. A roar of “Thank you, all!” to the volunteers, collaborators, and supporters of all kind, plus all those unnamed excellent others who helped to create the 25th Annual BareBones Halloween Puppet Extravaganza, BONESEED: Mist Stories.
BareBones is in the process of consciously educating and transforming its internal culture of creation and production to become a space that is welcoming of all community members who wish to join.
We want everyone who makes art with us to feel welcomed and safe. Each of the following six initiatives is part of an overall drive to actively educate ourselves about patterns of oppression at work in the culture around us and within our puppetry community, and address them with actionable solutions.
- POCI Art/Kitchen Interns $2000.
- Radical Empathy; Overcoming Intrinsic Bias. $500.
- Mediation / Emotional-Processing Support: $640
- Anti-Oppression Space Creation $300
- Self-care funds: $1060
- $100-500 *: as seed money for next year’s Barebones build
