Ed: update 1/6/2014 — Congratulations to Jamie, now 110% funded! But pledges still open for another 8 days.
Some of you know me as Rehearsal Assistant full of “inspiring” life quotes, others know me as the messenger from the gods of fruit and vegetables and some know me as the teacher who has a phrase to Lose My Breath or the soundtrack from Wicked. However you know me or remember me, did you know that for the last 8 months I have been volunteering as Tour Manager for the QL2 Boundless tour to Bangkok, London and Glasgow?
Whilst spreading messages of fruit eating and dancing to Lose My Breath I have also been liaising with dance companies, booking accommodation, arranging flights and scheduling the day to day activities of the 8 dancers and 4 adult members attending the tour – creating an overall tour that is full of wonder and excitement. During the 14 days of the tour, I will also volunteer his time to assist in rehearsals and choreographic development in Bangkok, assist Ruth with a presentation of a “boys in dance” session at the Commonwealth Youth Dance Festival in Glasgow and generally ensure a smooth and successful tour for those attending.
I’m volunteering, and this is going to cost me money. You can help. Check out the Oscar Winning* for Best Documentary Video explaining the campaign HERE!
This is a once in a life time opportunity for me personally and professionally. Not only does it provide an opportunity to network with youth dance companies around the world it also provides a unique opportunity for hands on professional development in the project coordination and management role.
Thanks to Creative Partnerships Australia, every dollar you give to this campaign will be matched up to $1000 through their Match: Crowdfunding for the Independent Arts Sector initiative.
What does this mean? Well thanks for asking! If you pledge $25 it will be matched dollar for dollar; meaning $50 will be given to the project. If you pledge $50, the project gets $100… you can do the rest of the math. With the all-or-nothing nature of this campaign, only if the $1000 target is reached will the funds be matched and passed on towards the project. Click here and help!
