As a community-based organization that advocates for the values of Equity, Access and Inclusion in arts and culture, we provide programs free of charge to playwrights and audiences. For this reason, The Lark’s business model focuses almost exclusively on contributed revenue from individuals and institutions.
This model frees us from traditional commercial and marketing pressures. As a laboratory and think tank, we see contributed revenue as an investment in cultural and civic discourse. We avoid side businesses — rentals, classes, gift shop, etc. — that would distract from our mission. While we seek unrestricted funds whenever possible in order to maintain our hallmark of flexibility in response to the needs of artists and the field, we also accept funds from donors interested in specific programs.
