Groups like Flux are an endangered species in today’s NYC, and the truth is that we’ve narrowly avoided displacement. We love LIC and we’re in the midst of a long-term plan to secure permanent sustainability. We are setting a fundraising goal of $25,000 by 2019, and now is your first chance to join a revamped Friends of Flux program we’ll soon roll out in full force. We aim to take Flux to a higher level, and we need your support to get there. Flux is a slice of old-school NYC. Like the 1960s’ “Flux Houses” in downtown Manhattan, our multidisciplinary family is prolific, socially engaged and scrappy. Our nearly 50 artists-in-residence of 2017 produced just as many public events this year including group exhibitions, concerts, potlucks, panels, and the unclassifiable. We provided $40,000 to artists for creating new works at Flux’s free public events, in addition to providing the low-cost facilities and support that premise creativity. We’re also producing the first ever group art exhibition at the Windmill Community Garden, a new green space for LIC, in tandem with our neighbors the Growing Up Green Charter School & The Dutch Kills Civic Association. Even before crunching all these numbers, we knew that Flux does more with less, and it’s all because we are a community that cares deeply about the singular civic role Flux performs.
