Machine Project in Echo Park, which "exists to encourage heroic experiments of the gracefully over-ambitious," was to receive a 35k grant this month, but given the economic state, the grant was canceled. The organization runs on donations and now they are worried about making their rent payments. Machine Head recently participated in a one day take over of the LACMA and are calling on all LACMA friends to help by donating money, purchasing a membership or purchasing a workshop gift certificate. Machine Project is 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization so all donations are tax deductible.
