So, you can now donate to La Muse through gofundme.com here.
Here's an abbreviated version of what we have to say there:
Look online. There's nothing else like La Muse. However, without 50,000 Euros by December 2010 to make up for a two-year 40% shortfall in our revenue (due to the crisis), we will close La Muse (described by one attendee as "a service to humanity"). If we do make up that deficit with your donations, we will be able to make it through this phase, and pledge to continue to offer residencies, barters and fellowships to artists and writers and artisans at all stages of their creative lives.
If you are a former Muser or a friend to the arts (either an individual or part of an organization) please consider giving to La Muse so that other creative individuals can avail of the gift you give to take time away to concentrate on their work. Thank you!
