924 Gilman is:
1. A DIY, nonprofit venue for music, art, and community events
2. A cultural landmark since 1986 that continues to inspire similar spaces globally
3. An all-ages, volunteer-run, drug and alcohol-free safe space
4. A multigenerational, independent collective
5. A place for young people to work cooperatively

924 Gilman has no “owner”, no co-owner, and no money coming in from anywhere except the front door, fundraising, and your donations. It’s operated by the 501(c)(3) nonprofit Alternative Music Foundation, that’s baby-sat by three¬†“corporate officers” who are long time Gilman volunteers. What they do is ceremonial. The membership meeting decides the actual course of events at Gilman. To say it another way; YOU, with your voice & vote, at the meeting, run the place.

Membership meetings are held the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month, 5PM, at 924 Gilman. Anyone is welcome to attend.
