Dear Scapegoat Garden friends,
Collaboration is at the heart of Scapegoat Garden’s mission. I’ve grown particularly aware lately that this spirit of collaboration is a delicate one, requiring that all parties invest in a common goal and experience a return on their investment. For Scapegoat Garden that goal is to arrive at compelling interdisciplinary performance that stimulates every sense. When it works as it should, something magical happens, a certain spark is ignited, and then the real work of stoking that flame begins. Sustaining the creative spark is the real work. Since 2002, I have had the privilege of working with artists I admire to make this collaborative power real in the studio and performance spaces. It is an ongoing lesson and I am grateful to be continually engaged in this learning.
Over the years, I’ve also learned that our devotion to collaboration extends beyond the studio. With each passing year, we find ourselves more in need of cooperation from individuals and organizations outside the studio as we work to grow more rooted in our creative process and our relationship to community. Our mission includes a commitment to deepening our relationship to our place, Hartford, and nurturing an ecosystem that can support dance for a long time. Your willingness to collaborate with us as contributors, volunteers, or cheerleaders is an essential component in the continued success of Scapegoat Garden… and that of the cultural ecosystem in any city, wherever you live.
We welcome your support and participation at any level. And thank you in advance for all the ways you will help sustain the work of the Scapegoat Garden. With your dollars and your word, you can place a vote for the expressive power of the moving body and the collective power of the collaborative process. Thank you for collaborating with us in this most important way!
With Sincere Gratitude,
Deborah Goffe, Director
