Spring Bash 2020

47 º N:
Velocity’s 2020 Spring Bash
April 20-26, ONLINE


Amidst this crisis, we are mourning the temporary closure of our studio and the ability to share space with each other. Alongside this profound loss, Velocity, and arts organizations across the country, are taking a hard financial hit with closures, cancellations, and postponements.

In light of all of this, Velocity’s annual Spring BASH is moving online, as it is imperative we hold a spring fundraising campaign to help cover the loss of income during this time. From April 20th to 26th, we will post a few of our favorite memories from Velocity’s video archives; share conversations and collaborations with artists and partner orgs about art and life in the time crisis, and invite you to dream with us about the future of Seattle dance and Velocity.

Velocity has weathered rocky times before, thanks to community support and the creative resiliency of dance artists. During the BASH we hope to raise funds to cover our operational costs so that we can continue to support our artists remotely, while planning and developing programs for the future. Please consider making your BASH gift to Velocity early and donate online today.

Follow us on our website, Instagram, or Facebook for updates.

HELP PROVIDE SERVICES AND GOODS TO ARTISTS Last year, Velocity flipped the script on traditional auctions and asked our community to buy chips and “chip-in” together to help fund packages of goods and services donated by generous Seattle businesses and entrepreneurs. At the end of the night, names were drawn and 5 lucky artists won assets and services to help them thrive as working artists in the city. We were originally planning on having the chip-in again at this years BASH, however, we have decided to postpone the chip-in until the fall when we can hopefully gather in person during the Fall Kick-Off. If you would like to donate goods or services (food, gift cards, office space, graphic design services, costume design, photography packages, tickets to shows, etc). Please contact development@velocitydancecenter.org.

Please reach out with any questions on the BASH or donating a gift to our artist service chip-in. Contact Colleen Borst at colleen@velocitydancecenter.org or call 206.325.8773.
