Firstly we need to say HUGE thanks to all of those who supported our Pozible campaign whether it was through pledging, tweeting, emailing, blogging or attending our event – your contribution means that we can continue our programming for the next 6 months! Hoorah!

We are now in the process of planning, sending out our Pozible rewards to pledgers and assembling a management team that will come together in the programing of events, workshops, exhibitions, forums, screenings and more! Coming up are some youth focused workshops and events plus our Writing and Performance program.
