Under Our Umbrella

A.  Are economic circumstances standing in the way of your giving your artistic gift?
B.  Would you like a place to publicize yourself, your art, teaching or project, that’s easy and attractive?
C.  Would your friends, family, and fans be more likely to support you financially if they got a tax deduction for doing so?
D.  Would you like to get money to do your art, project, or other teaching and not have the hassle of the paperwork?

Then apply for an Under Our Umbrella Partnership!

  • We take your application and a photo and make up a promotion for you.
  • We make it easy for your supporters to support you by providing an easy donate button just for you.
  • We take care of the paperwork—we collect the donations, you get a check twice a month when you get donations during any 14 day period, and your supporters get a tax letter they can use when they file their taxes.
  • We include you in our periodic Partnership features (3,000+ members on FB, 1500 Newsletter listees, web presence) so you get free promotion and your community gets reminders about what you’re up to--and you don’t have to do it!

You get to spend time doing what you love—not what you don’t.

For example: Apply for a Partnership and tell us how you’ll use the money (I’m going to write a curriculum for classes I want to teach, I’m going to do a month-long Instagram campaign posting images of things that inspire me and illustrate my teaching, etc.)

Your partnership can be for a specific goal, project, or general support, as long as you can demonstrate that it’s in alignment with our mission.

We collect a small fee (7-9%) depending on the level of administration you prefer.

What are some grants I can apply for as an Under our Umbrella partner?

Donate to “Coming To America”

In times like these. The Unknown. The Unusual. The non-conformist. We need ART to sustain us.

Join and support Uche Elueze as he aims to put up his one-man show in the city of Santa Cruz by the year’s end.

His show called Coming To America; not the movie is a story about his life. Being born in Nigeria and spending most of his life abroad.

The show will take place outdoors with social distancing as we try to adapt and move forward in these unusual times.

The show is a one-man solo show centered around self. And how different institutions and countries have shaped his character.

It’s an immersive show with storytelling, monologues performance art, and Improv.

Uchè Elueze has been apart of Santa Cruz Shakespeare and He appreciates any and all support.

The Cyborg Project is an immersive performance held both in-person and virtually that combines dance, film, sound, light, costume, and technology to explore our bodies’ hybridization with new technological advancements. Combining dance with AI, VR, AR, and Robotics, The Cyborg Project aims to explore a reality in which the dualisms between machines, animals, and humans are no more. Throughout the show audience members will be able to wander around live at The 418 Project in downtown Santa Cruz, or digitally through our 3D model, to choose their own adventure, and interact in real-time to affect the course of the show.

Whether we like it or not we are a part of a digitalized planet and with the dangers and opportunities of the 4th industrial revolution approaching, the question is; how will we learn to adapt and reckon with the potential of our technological future? Could it be that our next evolutionary leap may be from human to cyborg? As stated by Donna Haraway, the author of A Cyborg Manifesto, “Why should our bodies end at our skin?”.
