Every year AS220 publishes a report to share its achievements over the last year. We feel the true impact of our work is best demonstrated through the voices and stories of those who contribute to our community. Throughout the rest of the year, we’ll be sharing those stories here – or you can just read the whole thing now! We hope you enjoy reading how AS220 has helped change their lives!
The Daily Note 401
Louie and Cøøg founded The Daily Note 401 as a platform to promote “dope local Hip-Hop”. TDN 401 is one of AS220’s most active Live Arts Community Curators, bringing Hip-Hop to the Main Stage every month.
“As young creatives in the Hip-Hop world it’s tough to find a venue that works with us to get our vision across to the people. Finding AS220 has been an absolute blessing. Not only have they allowed us to create but they’ve encouraged our ideas and helped us elevate these concepts to their fullest potential. Since joining the AS220 family last fall, The Daily Note – as a Community Curator – has produced a handful of poetry showcases, producer spotlights, artist showcases, taken part in a plethora of AS220 community shows (including Foo Fest), and most recently produced a gallery of art and music. This may seem like AS220 is just a venue, in its simplest form, but we used the word “family” for a reason. Every time we step away from an event at AS220, whether we curated it or not, there’s this rejuvenated energy of acceptance and we sleep well with thoughts like: “Wow, this is why we do what we do”. We’re absolutely grateful they’re in our lives and we know the feeling is reciprocated!”
In 2017, AS220 has a year-end fundraising goal of $80,000! Through a number of very generous pledges by long-time supporters, AS220 Board members, and staff, we’ve raised $40,000 towards a matching challenge*. We need your support to secure these pledges. Help us raise another $40,000 to reach our goal!
