Support Magnificent Weirdos
You can support our agenda/mission/kaupapa in a myriad of ways:
Spread the word
Lend your expertise
Be a mentor
Make a commitment to do more to foster access and inclusion in the performing arts- do it by giving the reins to folx from marginalised communities, letting them be the gatekeepers and the leaders
You can also directly support The Magnificent Weirdos, by contributing your spare gold doubloons, or some of that cash that always falls down the back of the sofa and is a surprise find when you do the spring cleaning. Contributions can be a one-time offering or a regular commitment - whatever works for you.
Some of the ways in which your contributions will be put to magnificent use:
$50 funds an hour of outreach.
Outreach helps to build the community engagement and mentorship for emerging practitioners from marginalised communities
$150 funds an hour of learning and mahi from advisors on access and inclusion
Paying people what they're worth helps us to reinforce the importance of this knowledge in our community, and the value of what these advisors bring to the table.
$250 funds 10 hours of paid internship.
When possible, we prefer to pay people to come intern with us, rather than ask them to volunteer.
$1000 goes towards funding NZSL or Audio Description for a show.
One of our aims is to make the arts as accessible as possible at every opportunity, so help to fund an NZSL interpreter, a closed captioner, an audio describer or someone who facilitates experiences for people of diverse backgrounds and experiences. For example, it can cost up to $3000 to interpret a single performance- a lot of work goes into preparing, translating and reconstructing a script to make it appropriate for a Deaf audience.
$??? You decide the amount for weekly or monthly contributions
Whether it's the price of a coffee a week or more, your contributions will go to creating work and making sure all practitioners and supporting folx are properly compensated for their mahi.
