I will continue to ask for your help in pursuing my dreams. I have been working very hard this year focusing on my love of puppetry,
Not being inclined toward spending four years and $100,000 on a theater degree. I decided to apply and was accepted to the London School of Puppetry, this school compresses a year of study into a four month intensive. 9:30am-10:00pm every day, with respite only if points in the curriculum allow it.
During this time, I will develop three puppet shows and will also perform in multiple festivals across the UK and Europe. I will then return to the United States and spend another year working with my mentor apprenticing and working to develop a business plan ensuring that I become a sustainable artist.
When this is all approved and submitted, I will come out with a Diploma in Professional Puppetry.
I am asking for help because I cannot do this alone. I have made great progress jumpstarting this adventure, as well as starting my own puppet company. However, the total cost of schooling and expenses will be $20,000 (thank you poor exchange rate). Between saving and working extra jobs I will be able to fund a little over half of it. I am asking for you support for the rest.
The funds I am requesting will go toward the cost of the school's tuition, which is $10,700. I may also use some of it to purchase puppet construction supplies required to work for grants and scholarships. The course will begin in May of 2015.
I am also seeking help of time and talent from friends who may not be able to donate financially. I will be curating fundraisers and other great events. please email me at [email redacted] if you would like to help in that capacity.
Just added! I have 10 spots for founding sponsors in my company. Please note that rewards are for life (and bragging rights that you got me going).
This will support the foillowing categories.
I appreciate all your support both financial and emotional. Stay tuned as I get my website, various one-off fundraisers, and some other events up and running. I would love to meet and discuss this with anyone who is interested.
