Our goal is to raise $3500 to bring year round programming to Comfort Station by confronting one particular challenge: Comfort Station isn’t always that comfortable! Insulation and storm windows will efficiently keep the space comfortable enough to extend our programming into the winter months, and fixing our AC will make events in the summer truly comfortable, not blisteringly hot! Through the support of this project, we are poised to extend our programming in the winter months and begin our regular season of programming earlier in the year.
Comfort Station’s mission is to present multimedia arts programming that is open and accessible to anyone, while maintaining a high level of quality and a stimulating and challenging conceptual presence. Playful yet rewarding of attention, Comfort Station hosts monthly art exhibitions, a weekly eclectic music series, weekly film screenings, literary and theatre readings, puppet shows, and community workshops.
We're excited to announce a new partnership with a great local Logan Square business, Biofoam, who will be working with us to not only insulate the space, but carry out a more comprehensive project to make our building LEED certified! With this new partnership in effect, our kickstarter goal will now be the first phase in a longer process which will potentially involve insulating our walls in a preservation-minded way, installing efficient flooring, and integrating other features that will make our building one of the most energy efficient spaces in the neighborhood. Any amount that we make beyond our original goal of $3500 will now feed into this much more ambitious project thanks to the generosity of Biofoam.
Biofoam has generously offered a $250 discount on their services to anyone who pledges $100 or more! This could include home insulation, waterproofing, soundproofing, fireproofing, and more...
