BAX letterhead arts and artists in progress

Dear Friend of BAX,

I believe that nurturing creativity enables us to imagine a better future.
And I think you do too.

I believe that artists and arts organizations have a special role to play in furthering social and racial justice.
And I think you do too.

I believe that healthy communities support arts and arts education.
And I think you do too.

And I believe that BAX is a place where arts and activism unfold together. That is why I have accepted the responsibility of becoming the Chair of the BAX Board of Directors. I hope you will join me with your support.

Your gift enables 80% of our students & families to pay what they can on a sliding scale. It helps us provide free and low-cost rehearsal space to over 500 artists, as well as dozens of artist residencies each year. It supports unique and original intergenerational programming, like our new Drag Performance and Interrupting Bigotry workshops, as well as the continuation of our signature offerings like YouthWorks, a chance for young people to create original work with coaching from professional artists, all free of charge.

BAX is not only my artistic home but also my child’s. BAX allows me and my daughter to try a new idea, take a risk, and discover our individual artistic voices. The supportive and creative environment at BAX nurtures and encourages us to be who we are. This is as true for professional artists like me as it is for the youngest students. There are so few places like BAX, I feel both lucky and proud to be a part of it.

BAX has been an oasis of affirmation and creativity, and I’m just beyond grateful. The students are developed as artists and the relationships developed between the kids and the staff are unique and special.

Together, we can make sure that BAX continues to be a vibrant home for artists and activists of all backgrounds, ages, orientations, and genders. And that it continues to enrich our schools, our stages, and our community.

Please join me by making a gift to BAX today!

Creatively yours,

George Emilio Sanchez
Artist, Educator, Chair of the Board
