Dear Sprint Fam,
We are so excited to invite you to support our "Sprint to the Stage" Fundraising Campaign! Indigo and I have set an ambitious fundraising goal of $5,000 to cover the cost of producing a series of short films to accompany our live performance at the Summer 2018 National Queer Arts Festival. As you can see in the video above, we need your support!
The short films will depict different periods of Nana's life and will showcase the talents of no less than five women of color directors and editors. Your donation will help to cover the cost of compensation for these incredible artists and production of the films.
As we see it, this represents a critical step in our journey towards: 1) Delivering an unforgettable performance at the National Queer Arts Festival, 2) Growing the work into a fully-developed feature-length film, and 3) Sparking national conversation on the story's themes of anti-blackness and self-denial, sexual violence and self-destruction, healing and resistance.
Thank you for embarking on this journey with us. We couldn't do it with your support.
With love and gratitude,
The Sprint Team
PS: We'll be in touch throughout the campaign with more exciting Sprint tid bits, including some newly produced tracks ;-)
