When we interviewed fiscally sponsored project PeepMe about the cooperative platform they are creating for and by sex workers, they mentioned that they had in their operating guidelines an “Exit to Community.” We had never heard of the concept before but after they explained it to us, we’ve been mulling the idea over in our minds. Inspired by PeepMe, we’re sharing an introduction to Exit to Community, or E2C, in the hopes that it can help others think more broadly about how businesses, collaborative projects, and other ventures can be organized more equitably.

Et Alia is planning a very unusual kind of theater performance. On March 13, they will be presenting a performance with no rehearsals, no director, and a script sealed in an envelope for one actor. “White Rabbit Red Rabbit,” written by Iranian playwright Nassim Soleimanpour, was initially born out of his inability to leave Iran. He needed a play that could travel without him. Since it first premiered in 2011, it has been widely translated and performed.

When schools were going remote and the live theater world came to a sudden halt, it felt like the end of the world. But it was also the catalyst for new ways to imagine theater art and arts education.

As a creative, you need to manage your budget, create and sign contracts with studio spaces or freelancers, sock away funds into your savings, and then make it all legible to the IRS come tax season.
