First of all, look at the e-flyer above very closely. I distributed it at the performance last night.
Did you notice anything?
Focus at the bottom right corner.
Yes, my funding application has been approved!!! My project is now funded by Auckland Council’s Creative Communities Scheme.
It was approved on 10 April 2018, two days before the show.
What this means is that the funding now covers the cost for the venue and printing expenses for my flyers and marketing materials.
Yes, I am still performing Rakugo out of love (i.e. for free after other expenses), but it is now without a financial risk thanks to the scheme.
Thank you the Auckland Council for this opportunity!
