I’ve been kickstarting my project that showcases who we are as individuals on our skin. A project that combats negative body image by turning who we are into a work of art.
I only have two weeks left to raise the rest of my money so if there is any way you can help me promote this project, it would be greatly appreciated!

So far I’ve painted 56 out of my goal of 100 canvases and am needing the help of this project to reach my final goal. I hope you enjoy this project as much as I’ve enjoyed creating it!

Scadding Court is currently fundraising for a fantastic pilot program: Looking for Shakespeare.

The goal of Looking for Shakespeare Hamlet, is to engage marginalized youth in the adaptation and production of Hamlet, as a way of relating the themes of both Hamlet and the theatrical process to their lived realities, in particular to the recent violence that has shaken Toronto.

Definitely, We/I am in the process of setting off Virtuosi Infraganti Collective’s (an International group), “FiberFusion” Mural which was originally installed last September 2011 at  the WHite Rock Museum and Archives.
Ou intention was to tour the mural in the countries of the many participating artists. I am just resuming this task.
Would like to show it somewhere else in Canda before its departure (while we wait for official confirmantion from Venezuela, postponed dur to their current elections (!)
I am the creator and Executive Director of the poject http://www.virtuosiinfraganti.org
And as this section is Funding related, yes would love to have a sponsor for our trunk and most definitley one for the shipping costs…
I imagine any

Canadian company seeking toopen markets in Mexico, South America and Europe would potentially be interested….

I would also appreciate any solid contacts in major centres that could assist in bringing this plan to fruition.
Many thanks in advance

Over the years I have had a blast helping out Not-for-Profit and Arts organizations by producing great videos at no cost to them. These videos have gone on to help organizations raise fundraising dollars, promote their event and have their message reach a new (and sometimes global) audience. These videos have also helped me improve my skills, practice my craft and get my name out there. The only downside to all of this goodwill is that I broke the number one rule of business; I was not making any money. This never phased me as I was having a great time and was giving back to a community that I loved so much, but all the warm fuzzies in the world could not help offset the cost of updating my equipment which was rapidly falling behind the curve. While the old saying “It’s not the equipment, it is the quality of work” is very true, quality of work also has a lot to do with quality equipment :P

So I decided to start a campaign to help Two Hound Productions gain some new, high end equipment while at the same time donating my time back to the charities and non-profits I love to support. The best part is, you get to help too. Just head over to our Indiegogo Campaign, check out the perks and support the growth of a new business.

Thank you Two Hound, I appreciate we are both in the same boat!
Thank you for your time. All the best to you with new the acquisition of new equipment… :)

I’m not looking for funds, but I’m looking for votes that may help me get funds. I entered a competition called ‘Ambition Competition’ and was selected as a semi-finalist, but to become a finalist one must get facebook likes to go further. Thanks guys!

I am a theatre artist based in PEI and Montreal who has been training with Double Edge Theatre in Ashfield, Massachusetts. I am returning to Double Edge with a dear colleague/co-conspirator to continue our work for another 8 months, and we are raising funds for our tuition on indiegogo. THERE ARE FOUR DAYS LEFT TO DONATE! We haven’t raised as much as we initially hoped, but we would like to surpass $2000 in the next four days.

Check out the campaign here: http://www.indiegogo.com/doubleedge

Help us out by spreading the word, and donating – there are great perks in exchange for donations!

Support the growth of two young theatre artists as we develop our craft and create new individual and collaborative theatre projects, all within the context of an internationally renowned laboratory theatre in rural Massachusetts.

THANK YOU!
