An Invitation to Corporate Leaders: Invest in Art that Heals

For three decades, SPOKE has activated the power of art to heal, transform communities, and foster social cooperation. This December 1 for Days Without Art we present Touched: In Times of Pandemic, our 30th annual World AIDS Day installation, and 24-hour vigil at the Boston Center for the Arts’ Cyclorama.

SPOKE (formerly Medicine Wheel Productions) has invited thousands  to quilting bees, offer memorial artwork, and participate in other ways. As we did this year we will extend the event through Feb. 7′s National Black HIV/AIDS Awareness Day to use art to raise consciousness of deep, persistent racial and health inequities.

SPOKE seeks corporate support to meet the costs of this large-scale public art initiative. As a corporate sponsor, you will help us reach those affected by AIDS, Covid 19, addiction, racism, and violence, with the healing power of art. 

Your corporation can be a part of this unique project in the following ways:

1. Become a corporate sponsor of the larger project with a contribution of $1,000, $5,000, or more. here
2. Sponsor a panel of the National AIDS Memorial Quilt for $600 here. 
3. Register your staff to participate in a quilting bee for $300 here. 
4. Make a donation of any amount here.

“In this 30th year, Days Without Art takes on new resonance as we face multiple pandemics,” says Michael Dowling, Founder & Artistic Director of SPOKE (formerly Medicine Wheel Productions Inc.). “We invite the community to share this creative space with us and renew our commitment to activating art to heal ourselves and one another.”

Thank you for considering this request, and for helping us perpetuate our mission.
