SESSION is an Arts & Activism Collective, donation-based Tea & Arts House (Café, Theater, Studio, Stage, Pop-Ups) by RSVP, Podcast, and Media Network. Our goal is to provide people with free platforms and support to make money from their passions, and to create community-based businesses, networks, and projects in the process.
Why do we do this? We believe everyone deserves to live a life that affirms and sustains them without compromise. How do we do this? We donate our services, events, venues, and products to people for free, and suggest a monetary or in-kind donation in return. People have generously donated to us for our free services. We call this the “donation economy,” and it’s working.
SESSION started as a creative pop-up event in February of 2018, and continued as an event series over the next 6 months with performances, galleries, installations, screenings, listenings, and pop-ups. After a period of brainstorming and planning, SESSION relaunched in February of 2019 with the SESSION Tea & Arts House in Long Beach, CA, alongside the SESSION Live Podcast.
