  • Market their upcoming events through Mascher’s newsletter and website
  • Skill-share and lean on one another to help with technical, administrative, and artistic challenges
  • Present work at Mascher’s fully produced and funded AiR annual performance:Fresh Juice
  • Participate in Mascher’s professional/creative workshops for free or at a deep discount.
  • Past Mascher workshops include local and nationally renowned teachers: David Zambrano, Nora Chipaumire, Ziya Azazi, Shannon Murphy, Joy Mariama Smith, Michelle Boule, luciana achugar, and Deborah Hay.
