A note from our friend, Laurie Anderson:
As we approach the end of this year, I find myself reflecting on the remarkable tenacity of the arts in our communities—a glue holding together our spirits. My comrades at STREB are no strangers to this journey. For more than four decades, this iconic cultural arts organization has been a beacon of creativity and community and for the last 20 years has built their home STREB Lab for Action Mechanics (SLAM) in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn. From the thousands of audience members awed by the unbelievable feats of action performed by STREB EXTREME ACTION to the more than 1,500 students who take lessons at STREB’s action lab and within the community, it is undeniable: STREB makes an impact .
STREB is a living, breathing part of the public landscape. It is the space where innovation and imagination collide to give way to new ideas and perspectives. It is the soul of our communities, both in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where it’s lived for the last 20 years, throughout the five boroughs and beyond. It is a place where neighbors become friends, and friends become family. It is where we celebrate the richness of our diversity and the beauty of our shared experiences.
Sustaining an organization like STREB is not without its challenges. Reduced funding, increased operational expenses, and the shifting landscape of the arts scene has made charging forward more difficult. Yet, even in the face of adversity, STREB has continued to inspire, innovate, and uplift. I’ve witnessed firsthand the transformative power of STREB. Their endurance is our collective responsibility.
This is where we, patrons of the arts, community collaborators, come into play. We have the opportunity to be the lifeline that sustains SLAM. We can ensure that the work of STREB continues to make its impact.
I urge you to join me in helping STREB to match the generous gift of $75,000 from an anonymous supporter. Let us be the force that helps this space overcome the challenges it faces. Your support enable STREB to keep its doors open, its programs thriving, and its community growing. Keep STREB flying high!
With gratitude and hope,
STREB Action Maverick Award Recipient, 2016
