Offer-What-You-Will

It’s darn important to us that our programming remains accessible for as many folks in our community as possible. That includes making tickets Offer What you Will. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. But if you’re able, we ask you please make an offer. As a tiny but mighty arts org getting it done on passion and grit, Common Ground Arts Society relies on your support to help keep our scrappy operation afloat.
