COMPASS #85: Notes From the Crew (We received a sweet grant! We’re throwing a Telethon!)


There’s a lot happening around these parts. First, we are excited to announce that our organization won a grant from the Boston Cultural Council! These funds will spur our creative activity throughout 2017 and we are thrilled to be supported by our city. Next up is an event that has quickly become one our biggest annual endeavors.

From April 7th @ 10am until April 8th @ 10am we will be throwing the 2017 Boston Hassle 24 Hour Telethon & Performance Marathon over @ Somerville Community Access Television.

Why are we throwing a 24 hour telethon? Well, besides it being a GREAT idea and an AMAZING chance to highlight an insane gaggle of the area’s most unique performers and minds, we (the 501(c)(3) BRAIN Arts and our website/event booking arm, Boston Hassle) will be trying to raise start-up capital to back our signing of a lease for what will be an:
all-inclusive, all-ages art market/community center/performance space.

The telethon is open to the public. Space will be limited inside the television studio itself, but we are essentially turning all of Union Sq into a 24-hour party. Come hang at any of the businesses that support us. It will also be beamed the world over via the internet’s magic! Bands, poets, performance artists, rappers, comedians, video fuckery, storytellers, lectures, short films… we got it all! And we’re even still accepting performance submissions, so get in touch!!!
