Jazida has been producing shows since March 2016. After demonstrated success, we want to expand to deliver greater support, more opportunities and work with larger venues
We need access to spaces/venues (which often comes a a fee), we need equipment (such as lights and better speakers), we need professional services (such as sound/lighting techs), we need administrative support (book keeping and marketing – Jazida is currently doing it all on her own and can’t expand without assistance). Funding to help provide these things would support JazidaProductions in continuing to provide services to the arts community.
JazidaProductions will continue to facilitate monthly shows and workshops with interstate and local performers! This will happen smoothly and with a few team members (instead of just Jazida alone). Money generated will be put towards future shows with a goal to establishing a dedicated venue fit for purpose to deliver the goal of supporting the elevation of performance art in Canberra going forward
