We prefer that all public events be priced affordably, on a wide sliding scale, in order to be accessible to as many people as possible.
For public events, we assist with outreach and publicity, in the form of our website calendar, announcements on our Facebook group and page, as well as a weekly newsletter that goes out to over a thousand people.
