Warning, blatant plug!!

Dear Friends and Supporters of Vulcana Women's Circus,

Vulcana is appealing to your help to ensure the continuation of our current
project, Strange Creatures.

Vulcana is currently creating our latest large-scale community show, Strange
Creatures, with members of the Vulcana community and women from the Deaf
community. We have been working together on this project for the last 8
months. Due to the failure of one application to the Australia Council and
our overall funding situation the project is severely compromised.



Vulcana doesn't receive any operational funding and so is totally dependent
on project funding for its continuation. There has been a steady decline in
the range and amount of arts funding that is available for projects. We are
in a position where we must achieve an almost 100% success rate in a highly
competitive, state wide or national, funding pool to be able to achieve the
program that we plan each year. And we are not able to predict what the
outcome of all anticipated funding sources are before we begin many of our
projects.

To be able to support the women who have devoted much time, energy and
enthusiasm to this current project and to ensure that the production is a
success we are appealing to all friends and supporters of Vulcana to help in
whatever way they can.

We are especially calling for donations to cover production costs for
Strange Creatures. Bank details for donations are included at the end of
this email. Please include your name in the description (unless you prefer
to stay anonymous) and email us your details to receive your certificate of
entitlement.

We are currently applying for charitable status but as yet have not received
it so unfortunately these donations are not tax deductible. Please see below
for what we can offer in exchange for your donation.

If you can donate $50 - $100 you will see your name in lights throughout the
performance season of Strange Creatures at the Judith Wright Centre for the
Arts.

If you can donate $100 - $500 you can have any one-off circus workshop at
the Stores Building over the next year and your name in lights throughout
the performance season of Strange Creatures.

If you can donate $500 - $1000 you can have 1 term of any circus workshops
at the Stores Building over the next year and your name in lights throughout
the performance season of Strange Creatures.

If you can donate $1000 - $5000 you will receive a lifetime membership to
Vulcana Women's Circus, any circus workshops at the Stores Building over the
next year and your name in lights throughout the performance season of
Strange Creatures.

If you can donate over $5000 you will receive a lifetime membership to
Vulcana Women's Circus, any circus workshops at the Stores Building over the
next three years and your name in lights throughout the performance season
of Strange Creatures.

Other ways that you could support Vulcana Women's Circus could include:

Buying tickets to the show (details of the season will be forwarded in the
next month or see the Judith Wright Centre program for dates, times and
ticket prices.)

Pass on this email and publicity emails to all your networks

Help distribute flyers

Any other suggestions welcome.
