Join our village
The theory is that homo sapiens evolved the capacity to interact in a meaningful way with a limited number of people. This is how many people we can know by name and consider a friend. Humans lived in villages and tribes of this size up until the agricultural revolution concentrated populations. Then social organization became the job of governments and of cities themselves, rather than the result of relationships. Named for British anthropologist Robin Dunbar, “Dunbar’s number” is proposed at 100-250 and typically cited as 150.
But Khecari is small, and we like small things. We want a village of 120. Join us as a monthly donor. We’ve got folks at $1/month, folks at $300/month, and everywhere in between. We know them all by name and cherish them all.
It’s a hard time for the arts. We’re not looking for growth. Rather we asked ourselves, what can make us sustainable over the years, even as grant money dwindles and the dance field is radically remade? This was our answer: a little village of people who care about what we do and support us at whatever capacity they can.
Khecari is a 501(c)3 and all donations are fully tax deductible. We’d like to extend huge thanks to our supporters. The arts in America depend upon generous individual giving. We believe in paying all the artists with whom we collaborate. Ticket sales can generally cover at most 20% of a show budget. To pay our artists and keep show prices affordable, we rely on donations. Thank you for your support.
