Dear friends of CQ,
As we come to the close of 2016, Contact Quarterly’s 41st year in publication, we want to share exciting news about upcoming projects & publications and celebrate the accomplishments we've made this year!
In support of our upcoming work, we ask you to make a gift. Will you consider a gift of $50? $100? $250? $500? Your gift, of any amount, by December 31st is 100% tax-deductible in 2016.
This year, CQ has brought several new voices into our dance journal—those of both young fresh perspectives and seasoned artists in the field—keeping CQ relevant and vital to the dance world.
This summer, we updated our worldwide Contact Improvisation Contacts List, making this public resource more reliable and easy to use on the CQ website.
- The Contact Quarterly Advisory Board has begun to explore ways to digitize all CQ dance journal back issues and we hope to offer digital articles from our archive for download in the coming year.
The CQ store has new publications and products each season, and we are excited to offer a new “tool for creative research”: the 86 Aspects of Composition card deck developed by composer and improviser Mike Vargas.
2016 also saw the return of our former publication cycle, which includes two print CQ dance journals (January and May), the Contact Improvisation Newsletter in print and online, and CQ Unbound—online writings posted year-round that extend the content of the print journal. Each Summer/Fall issue of the journal includes a special FOLIO that dives deep into a single focus or theme. Look out for the Improvisation and Philosophy FOLIO coming out this May.
Your gift will help sustain our independent artist-run, artist-centered non-profit organization's work in the coming year—providing unparalleled primary source materials for dance inspiration and dance scholarship.
Your 100% tax-deductible donation goes a long way toward facilitating this critical work in the field of dance.
Please make a donation by December 31st to keep CQ strong and in motion!
Nancy Stark Smith and Lisa Nelson
Contact Quarterly co-directors and co-editors
P.S. Remember, every gift to CQ before December 31st is 100% tax-deductible in 2016. We hope you will give today!
