Some three years ago, the Sacred Realism series at Studio 8 was started with a pair of speakers found on the street. Since then, the series has developed into a consistent forum for sharing and listening, and acted as a kind of musical home for a community of people both local and international. In hopes of offering a more reliable, higher-quality sound setup for future concerts, we are hosting a two-day, marathon fundraiser event. The main purpose of the fundraiser is to raise €1000 for the equipment we need (speakers, mixer, cables, etc.), but we also see it as an occasion to celebrate and strengthen the community that has shaped and been shaped by the series over the years. We have a Paypal account for those who can't make it and/or want to contribute from afar: http://sacredrealism.org/series/series_fundraiser.html.
