Before we break for Thanksgiving, we just wanted to a take a moment to thank you!
Thanks to you, 2013 was Vera’s biggest year for programming ever. We’ve already held more shows and classes and served more people than last year with a month of the year left to go! Most importantly, young people were involved every step of the way, from concert and event production to drafting our new strategic plan.
Vera is laying the foundation for 2014. To do this, our goal is to raise $25,000 before the end of the year. Would you help Vera with a donation today?
Your donation directly supports experiential learning experiences for Vera’s community of young people, like Andrienne and Sonya, pictured above,. It also helps keep concert tickets and classes affordable and accessible for everyone. 2013’s diverse calendar of shows included many punk and hip-hop shows with artists like SoMo, Sam Lachow, Waxwing and Joyce Manor, live comedy from Tig Notaro as well performances by the legendary of Montreal, Ian Mackaye, and Deerhoof. We also started new classes in DJing and Music Journalism, had program staff participate in training with the Raikes Foundation and Schools Out Washington, received a major grant from our friends at Boeing, and co-hosted a book signing with Rookie Magazine’s Tavi Gevinson. Your support will help us continue to offer this high quality programming in 2014. Thank you!

For those who don’t know Tavi Gevinson, let me bring you up to speed. In 2008, at the age of 12, Gevinson started a fashion blog Style Rookie that drew tens of thousands of readers a day. Due to the success, she was invited to attend New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week, commissioned to write articles for fashion magazines, and even landed a modeling gig for a clothing line at Target. In 2011, she decided to stop writing primarily about fashion and founded Rookie Magazine, a blog focusing on issues impacting teenage girls written mainly by teenage girls. Some bold guest contributors included Lena Dunham, Miranda July, & Bethany Consentino. A popular series on the blog is the Ask a Grown Man videos with contributions from Paul Rudd, Jimmy Fallon , and Jon Hamm. In 2012, after releasing a print edition of the magazine, Rookie Yearbook One, Gevinson spoke at TEDxTeen focusing on representation of women in popular culture.
This brings us to 2013 for the release of Rookie Yearbook Two. There is something in Yearbook Two that all woman and even men can relate to. I think Anna Minard from The Stranger says it best, ” The book and the site feel like a riot, a celebration, overflowing with advice and hero worship and a sort of road map to your own agency, no matter what age or gender you are.” Join the Vera this Saturday as Tavi Gevinson and other contributors will be reading and signing yearbooks for the launch FOR FREE. They’ll even have a zine workshop in conjunction with Short Run and Elliot Bay. You don’t want to miss out!
