We Are Culture Indiegogo Campaign Exceeds Expectations!

We Are Culture Indiegogo Campaign Exceeds Expectations!

Thanks to the generosity and support of hundreds of Neruda Arts and MT Space fans, our We Are Culture Indiegogo campaign of 2013 succeeded in raising $17,175.

That’s $1,175 more than our goal! Many donations were received from right here in Waterloo but some came from as far afield as Australia, Lebanon and Chile. The money raised was used to produce the We Are Culture music and theatre series hosted in the new Courtyard Studio in the Bonnie Stuart Workshops where Neruda Arts and MT Space are based.

Highlights from this series included two tribute concerts featuring Proyecto Altiplano and Color Violeta, Cliff Cardinal’s gripping one-man play, HUFF and the world premier of Hazim Kamaledin’s Black Spring. Artistic Directors Isabel Cisterna and Majdi Bou-Boutar send heartfelt thanks to everyone who donated to the campaign and to those who volunteered during the series. 

“I can’t stress how much it buoyed our spirits knowing that the community got behind the We are Culture campaign to support the work of Neruda Arts and MT Space.”
