next wave of audience development?

Add your voice to the next wave of Audience Development ideas with the Mellon Foundation's Project Audience.

Caveat: I love/hate their spin on participation: "no price for admission" (what?) - you just have to give freely of your time and expertize (2-4 hours a week! that's not nothing!).

If they really value the expert input of arts leaders, they should pay for it. Right? If I charge a super duper low-cost fee of $50 an hour (bargain!) that could be $100-$200 a week in extra income. (that could help support the new Metrocard fees!!)

Come on Mellon. You are philanthropists! Put your money where your mission is!
