EDINBURGH FRINGE IS TOO STALE, PALE, MALE! AT BECHDEL THEATRE  WE'RE DETERMINED TO SHAKE THINGS UP. 

THIS IS HOW WE WILL DO IT

- We will use our famous stickers to highlight the posters of productions that pass the Bechdel Test. That means, they must have

At least 2 women*,
Who talk to each other
About something other than a man. 

More information on the origins of the test can be found here

- We will record podcast  episodes interviewing and amplifying the voices of under-represented artists.

- We will use social media platforms and our blog  to champion the shows that are showing us the representation that we want to see across ALL of the performing arts industry.

This is where you can help:

We're raising money to BECHDEL TEST Edinburgh Fringe 2019!
These funds will be used to get us (Pippa & Beth) to Edinburgh Fringe during the month of August.

We will use all our platforms reaching audiences of 10k+ to highlight and amplify the voices of under-represented artists at a festival which is historically and currently overwhelmingly dominated by posh, white, non-disabled, cis men (bleugh - this is massively unrepresentative).

WHY CROWDFUNDING?

We have raised most of the funds we need for this work through running workshops, and a fundraising night - we have our travel and living costs covered. We now need to pay for the accommodation we have booked - £1000 for us to share a small room for the month. 

We don't have any outside funding. We're totally independent, run by 2 people out of pure passion for supporting theatre & performance work that we want to see MORE OF, so we're not attached to a larger organisation, building, or body. We both work day jobs to support our work and the company. 

This  page is for anyone who couldn't  make it to our workshops or fundraising event, but would still like to support our work. If you've already supported us financially, don't do it again - but we'd love you to share this page!

NB: GoFundMe has a minimum donation of £5.
If you would like to donate less than £5, you can make a £3 contribution through Ko-Fi , or you can become a Patreon   for $1 (75p!) a month, which helps us cover our monthly outgoings (webhosting etc). 

THANK YOU for your support!

*Solo shows can pass the test if they're not all about a man, and non-binary/trans artists who may not ID as women can self-identify with the test as & when they choose. We're not gatekeepers of the test & take it in the spirit of Alison Bechdel's Dykes To Watch Out For comic strips which includes & values all kinds of representation!
