Thanks & a big week!

Dear Supporters,

So, yes, yes, yes! On behalf of everyone at UnionDocs, we are happy to say that your generous contribution has helped us reach and even surpass our goal. This was our first true fundraiser, and we witnessed our community really come together for the cause. The kindness and support we received over the last few months is very inspiring. We look forward to sharing news on upcoming renovations, as the hopes and plans become realities. UnionDocs is a space built on collaboration, and your collective generosity will be enjoyed by thousands of artists and audience members over the next decade and beyond.

The excitement of the Kickstarter Campaign concluded with an incredible Finish Line Party, featuring some amazing bands and the opening of Looking at Los Sures: Organizing Space, a video installation and 10 day workshop next door at 306 Union. We hope all who made it out enjoyed, and those unable to attend were definitely there in spirit! The installation and subsequent community screening of Los Sures started conversations among over 300 people from all corners of the neighborhood. We also were happy to showcase the collaborative project alongside Diego Echeverria's film with a screening at Harvard University, sponsored by the metaLab and the Film Studies Center, which was nicely written up in The Crimson. See some pics below and more on our photostream. With luck, the collaborative project, our upcoming screenings, workshops and other events will all continue with as much momentum and energy as the last week has brought.

Soon you will be receiving a survey requesting the information we need in order to successfully deliver your reward. Please fill that out ASAP, so we can send you the token of our gratitude that you chose.

Again, please accept our deepest thanks and we hope to see you soon!

Your friends at UnionDocs.
