About 'Taste of the Breadbox':

In 2015, Wandering Aesthetics was awarded a two-year Knight Arts Challenge matching grant for “Bigger Than a Breadbox.” Building on the success of our open mic-style “Electric Pressure Cooker Cabaret”, “Breadbox” gathers Akron’s finest performers, provides coaching to further develop their talent and then features these acts in quarterly vaudeville-esque variety shows. Shows rotate throughout different neighborhoods in Akron, highlighting their unique histories– from the forgotten women of the canal era to the changing faces of North Hill.

Over the past nine months, “Breadbox” has worked to successfully raise over $30,000! However, “Breadbox” is $5,500 shy of its Year One match criterion. Once these funds are raised, “Breadbox” can focus on elevating its artistic quality, growing the company and creating the most impactful programming possible.

To complete our remaining match for year one of Bigger Than a Breadbox, we are hosting a two-day online auction: Taste of the Breadbox: An Evening of Culture from the Couch. The online auction site will be live for 48 hours beginning on April 14, 2017 at 12:00 pm and closing on April 16, 2017 at 12:00 pm.

The Pajama JAM may be FREE, but we all know how hanging out in your p.j.’s all night is priceless!
