The Centre was incredibly important venue for musical improvisation, free jazz, and experimental painting and poetry. As a music venue, it was better known by the name The Crypt. The letter, signed with an unintelligible signature, discusses the financial difficulties of the nascent venue - We have had to close the Crypt for awhile until we get more help and bread. " The brochure outlines the programs, including The Crypt, devoted to "Jazz, poetry and jazz, sound poetry, sounds and newgroups and theatre, " a poetry workship, educational programming for children, and a "New Dialogue School naming as participants Keefe West, Al Kovitz (for Spontaneous Music), and Ron Geesin (Sounds - Taped Sounds). The poetry workshop prints an unattributed poem, and urges readers to "bring your poems, " which has been circled in holograph.
