Indiegogo Campaign Launched

Indiegogo Campaign Launched

We Are Culture is an epic venture by MT Space and Neruda Arts that will see these two small but mighty arts organizations join forces to present 8 weeks of culturally diverse arts programming from September 24 to November 17 in the Waterloo Region of south western Ontario, Canada.

Both organizations have already received grants that will allow us to produce We Are Culture events, thousands of volunteer hours have been put into building this campaign, raising the funds, liaising with the artists from around the world and now it’s time to appeal to the community for the remaining $16,000.

We Are Culture kicks off with the 3rd edition of MT Space’s biennial, international theatre festival, IMPACT 13. Focused on the theme of occupation, IMPACT 13 will see hundreds of local, national and international artists occupy theatres, reclaiming territory through courageous acts of performance. IMPACT 13 will include productions as diverse as La Ciudad de los Otros / The City of Others by Sankofa Danzafro from Colombia, DRIFT or drive by Kitt Johnson / X-Act from Denmark, The Gaza Monologues by Ashtar Theatre from Palestine and closer to home, The Global Savages by the Debajehmujig Storytellers of the Wikwemikong First Nation reserve onManitoulin Island, Ontario, and Myra’s Story by PrACTical TheACTrics.  

Between IMPACT 13 and Kultrún, MT Space and Neruda Arts will host a We Are Culture Music and Theatre Series in the intimate surrounding of The Courtyard @ Bonnie Stuart Studios – where the two organizations are based! The We Are Culture Series premieres the work of Canadian artists from various artistic & cultural backgrounds.

We Are Culture concludes with Neruda Arts’ inaugural indigenous and world music festival, Kultrún. This festival recognizes the centrality of Indigenous artists in the creation of world music and derives its name from the cosmic vision of the first peoples of Artistic Director, Isabel Cisterna’s native Chile.
