1419 Needs Your Help

1419, an interdisciplinary art space located in downtown Minneapolis, is in danger of losing its space. The folks behind 1419 posted messages on their Faceebook/Twitter pages, asking for our support: "...if you value 1419 and would like to see it stick around, please visit our website (which is '1419', then a dot, then 'us') and consider donating to us."

What happened? According to a separate e-mail we've received, funding is becoming a bit of a problem:

We've been having some tough times making rent money to pay for our storefront space. Partly as a consequence of our November fundraising event falling flat as a result of running straight into that ugly ice-storm the other week (hope you all stayed safe), 1419 is in danger of losing our space. We need a hand to be able to hold on to our building, to stay vital and to keep programming free events and programs that support and enrich our community.
