This is a great way to financially support KSD and make your money go further!

The Seattle Foundation’s GiveBIG is a one-day, online charitable giving event to inspire people to give generously to nonprofit organizations who make our region a healthier and more vital place to live. Each donation* made to the 1,600 nonprofit organizations profiled on The Seattle Foundation’s website between midnight and midnight (Pacific Daylight Time) on Tuesday, May 5, 2015, will receive a prorated portion of the matching funds (or “stretch”) pool. The amount of the “stretch” depends on the size of the stretch pool and how much is raised in total donations on GiveBIG day. As long as you have an internet connection (or access to the internet on your mobile phone), you can participate!* We will “stretch” all donations up to $2,500 per donor, per organization.

Artistic Statement

Movement is the impetus as life is the content. Through layers of movement is the thread of truth; the sole story, the shape and texture of feeling and meaning. Beneath the motion is etched the lines of our grief and grandeur in this 21st century imperfect, moving human art form. The purpose of our relationship to creation is revealed. Beautiful. Infinite. Moving. Live. Turbulent. Grace.

“Karin is the consummate artist professional: easy to work with, warm, enthusiastic, imaginative, and above of all, supremely competent. The result… a memorable experience for performers and audiences alike.”

-John Zoltek Music Director, Glacier Symphony and Festival Amadeus Whitefish, Montana
