In April, our commitment to artist ownership led us away from our incorporation as a public benefit corporation. Instead, the team rallied around another idea: becoming a cooperative—100% owned by our artists, workers, and community.
Currently, we are in the process of making this transition—which has significant implications for our goals, growth, fundraising, and more. What we have found is that there are very few examples of cooperative platforms that we can use as a reference. As a result, we want to start a series of posts to openly share our progress and learnings in this process of transitioning to a co-op.
