Thank you for supporting Outer Space Arcata!

Outer Space Arcata, a 501(c)3 nonprofit*, is a volunteer-run arts center for the community in Arcata, CA. Outer Space focuses on community building, youth empowerment, & promotion of understanding societies varying forms of oppression through education and creative expression. We want to serve as an incubator for artists, writers, thinkers, and the youth of our community. *We're a DreamMaker Project of the Ink People Center for the Arts.

An accessible, multi-purpose all ages arts and music center like this does not come cheap. While we consider Outer Space to be monumentally successful in so many ways, monetarily, we are scraping by. New and exciting things are happening or being added to the calendar every day and we are doing everything we can to keep up with very limited resources.

So we are asking for your help.
Your support and sponsorship helps ensure that we can continue to provide a space and outlet in our community for showcasing local arts and music, workshops, classes, readings, discussions, health and wellness, and so much more!
Your sponsorship keeps our doors open, and lets us continue to be a welcoming safe space and creative outlet for youth, artists, people navigating marginalized identities, and the community as a whole.

"But what's in it for me?"
Your donation allows Outer Space to continue to exist, grow, and thrive. Outer Space was created after 2 years of fundraising, 4 years of organizing and community building. In the almost 3 years of Outer Space’s existence, we think it has proven to be a hugely desired and valuable resource for our community. We think that's important. We think that's a pretty big deal. We hope that you do too!
At the Star Supporter and Deep Space Explorer tiers, you are gifted monthly free entry cards to all shows at Outer Space. With our average of 6+ shows our space per month, this is a pretty amazing deal.
Maybe you're one of those people who finds themselves at Outer Space three times a week. Or maybe you will only find time to come to three shows a year, but those three shows are really important to you, and you very much want to be able to come to them in the future. We want that too, and that's why we need your help.

Besides Patreon, you can help Outer Space Arcata by: making direct donations in person at Outer Space or online at our Ink People page https://www.inkpeople.org/dreammaker-data/outer-space-arcata, volunteering at Outer Space, or you can buy our benefit cassette tape on our bandcamp page.
Proceeds from this compilation (released April 2016) went towards our “goal to raise funds for a permanent physical music and arts location in Arcata, CA; where we might serve our local youth and host all-ages events in a safer space." This goal has in many ways been achieved through Outer Space, and the proceeds of this compilation continue to go towards continuing this dream. 

All of the 17 tracks have been donated by the artists – and we thank each one of them for participating in this project! All recorded content is owned by the artists.
