"This project didn't save my life. It MADE the rest of my life."
- Renee, 69, TransGenerational Theatre Project Co-Creator and Facilitator
What started as a small project, two years ago, today is a community - a family - a team of so many trans and gender non-conforming people across ages and generations, making community and theatre together.
And this year we're going to do it again. And it's going to be even better. And we want to invite more people, compensate them better, have a better budget for the production and bring what we create to wider audiences.
But WE NEED YOUR HELP.
We need spaces where young trans and GNC people can be with elders and older folks and where we can learn from each other across generations.
We use interactive games and activities to create a theatrical performance exploring issues and questions relevant to lives of the participants. Absolutely NO experience in theatre is needed to participate.
We need help from YOU in raising funds to make this happen. To make this space of connection, healing and power happen. We need it to provide metro cards, food and a small stipend for participants and child care The more you give, more we can compensate incredible performers for their work!!!!!
FOOD: 11 non-elder participant dinners at SAGE 1x per week
METROCARDS: For 11 non-elder participants 1x per week
FOOD FOR EVENTS + SNACKS AT EACH REHEARSAL to feed 25 people: (we get lunchfor our Saturday day long rehearsals)
Costumes/Props and Paying Makeup Arts: A small budget for any props or costumes we may want to use for our final sharing event as well as bringing in trans/gnc support staff
Payment to Co-creators for their work ($75 per co-creator)
