It started ten years ago as what it describes as "a dumpster-diving, Do-It-Yourself warehouse space." Today, Santa Fe's Meow Wolf is an arts and entertainment powerhouse -- part concert venue, part immersive fantasy world and part learning center for kids. In 2017, it decided to share its success and established the Meow Wolf DIY Fund to support other alternative arts spaces around the country.
"Our DIY Fund is set up to help spaces that not only support artists but also musicians, performers and creativity in general," says Meow Wolf's Danika Padilla. "An open space where people can come and create together."
In this longer version of the interview, Danika goes into greater detail about the DIY Fund and describes how the public can donate to it by visiting Meow Wolf's indiegogo page.
