*About our suggested donation: $10 helps keep our programming going and cover the costs of producing the festival. You might consider paying less if you are un- or under- employed, have significant debt, lack access to familial/other assets and/or are supporting dependents. You might consider paying more if you have full time employment that enables you to meet your basic needs and have expendable income, you have no dependents and little debt, and/or you have access to multiple assets or familial wealth. We seek to welcome all people to our space and encourage you to pay what is comfortable for you.
