HELP GET KAWUNA TO SOUTH AFRICA!
from director Kemiyondo Coutinho
Dear friends and family,
As some of you may knowm my one-woman show about HIV positive women in Uganda, Kawuna…you’re it!
, has been invited to be a part of National Arts Festival
in South Africa. Whilst I can’t announce publicly that I am part of the main program till the festival makes their public announcement, I wanted to share with you this great news!
I first attended this festival as a student 8 years ago and now I get to be a part of the main program in the second largest festival in the world! This will be the first Ugandan show to ever be a part of the main program at this festival. I am beyond delighted and humbled by the support I have received thus far towards taking this special project there.
Whilst the festival covers accommodation, meals, space and advertising they do not cover international travel costs and production costs (sound, lighting, costume, director salary and props) . I am fundraising to cover these expenses so that I am indeed able to take this show across the ocean to South Africa! I have a fundraising page
that I invite you to please look at and if you are in the position to, make a donation of any kind. I am currently at 40% of my goal with 3 weeks left till my deadline! I am confident with your help, I can meet this goal and share these voices and stories internationally. I will be filming this show and every contributor will receive a copy of the recording!
If you are not in a position to donate, I certainly understand and hope that you can share my indiegogo page with 5 people who you think would be interested in supporting a project like this one. The goal is to get as many people involved as possible!
I look forward to sharing this work and I thank you for your previous support on projects before this. I couldn’t have got here without you.
