Funding Appeal and Pizza Party: Salvage Vanguard for its 25th Anniversary and Amplify Austin, February 28, 2019
On February 28th, 2019 Austin will hold the annual Amplify Austin Day, a community-wide day of online giving. Salvage Vanguard Theater (SVT) invites you to give to SVT so we can give more. We believe that Austin theater is only as dynamic, diverse, urgent and powerful as its artists. As the cost of living in Austin increases, so should what we pay our artists. Salvage Vanguard Theater wants to keep artists in Austin.
Salvage Vanguard hosted our first performance in Austin, TX in 1994. This year marks our 25th Birthday. In celebration, we invite you to join us in supporting our artists by paying them a “Giving Wage” --- Larger paychecks to our artists that allow them to not only live in Austin, but thrive in Austin’s creative community. We are raising $8,000 to increase artists pay. We intend to put every dollar of this $8,000 into the pockets of the artists who make SVT: A non-profit organization that provides accessible, affordable, artistic exchange between a diverse, inclusive community of artists and audiences through high quality experiences that foster experimentation and generate conversation.
25th Birthday Pizza Party: You are invited! Feb 28th, 2019, 6-10 pm at the North Loop Home Slice Pizza come and celebrate our successful quarter century of producing bold new theatrical work. For a $25 in-person Amplify Birthday Party donation you will receive a T-shirt designed by visual artist Billy Burkert. Find us at the picnic table out back! A percentage of sales for the House Pizza and the Good 'ol Fashion during our birthday party hours will support SVT’s efforts to pay artists more. Thank you Home Slice Pizza!
If you can’t make the pizza party, you can give the artists of SVT a birthday present online.
