pieces are shifting; the pattern is changing...

kaleidoscope is pleased to announce that it is now a non-profit under the umbrella of The Alliance for Global Justice. in conjunction with that change, kaleidoscope will now start writing grant proposals and any donations made to kaleidoscope will be tax-deductible. our new board of directors consists of EK Keith, Nara Denning, Jesse Mosher, Cormac O'Donoghue and Sergei Varshavsky.
and while we're changing things up kaleidoscope has decided to look for a new home. we'll still be in san francisco, we'll still be in the mission and we hope to still be in the same neighborhood (the lower 24th street corridor) but we are looking for a building which will allow us to stretch our wings a little further. a building where dancers won't have to avoid the bumpy part of the floor, a building where we can rock out from time to time, a building where we can build the gift shop and help more artists/artisans sell their work. a green room would be nice, and so would more room for the books. but kaleidoscope will still be kaleidoscope--intimate, comfortable, accessible. with all that we want in a space, it may take a little while to find the right building but as soon as we do we'll bid adieu to 3109 24th street.
we've also now officially begun tuesday movie nights. we've tried before but the technical issues have been worked out and we have a great movie curator with scads of little-known and/or important public domain movies to share.
and finally, a last big change is that no shows will begin later than 8:30 pm so that kaleidoscope can be a better neighbor. this will go into effect shortly but gradually as some shows have already been advertised as starting at 9.
