That's a wrap!
🗓 September was #artsmonth and it. was. INTENSE.
We hosted 34 events with over for 1,400+ attendees, 4 exhibitions, and 1 pop-up shop.
The events ranged from workshops, openings, music nights, art socials, fashion shows, drawing nights and many more.
Because we sponsored these events, it meant that local creatives were able to experiment with little risk/cost and keep the money they earned instead of paying an unaffordable venue fee. We covered many expenses by selling drinks and the support of our Patreon Members!
We'd love to continue with this model, we lost about $2,000 so we're thinking of throwing 1 fundraiser a month inviting all creatives and people who appreciate creative events to come, make music, poetry, food, and friends with the XCHC crew and join the Patreon ranks ✊🏻
Yea? More to come soon ;)
5 years in, and we're still learning, thanks for coming with us on this journey 🙂
