The Board would like to accept and embrace the many offers it has received for benefit performances, assistance in fundraising, and donations. Anyone interested in helping The Skylight can e-mail the board at firstname.lastname@example.org first offer of help that came in was not a for a benefit performance or assistance in fundraising. it was this:
Friends (whoever you are).this missive of "support" was written by the "artists only exist because we chose to pay them" emailer. our grammarian and spellchecker extraordinaire was the first respondent to the mailbox set up for the board to connect directly with the artist community and this time he was bashing the board for caving in.
This sounds as if the Board is "wishy washy" and has "caved" into pressure.
How has the financial situation of the SKYLIGHT now changed that allows the Board to reverse it's announced decision regarding the position of Artistic Director? Whereas before I had confidence in the Board's ability to analyze a problem and then come up with a viable solution, I now definitely have reservations.
IF the original solution was valid rather than a "snap decision", then why the change? If it wasn't valid, I then quesion the Board's ability to make a good and educated decision in the future. It seems that this press release raises more questions than answers(in my mind at least).
accept and embrace that.
