Performing the World International Organizing Cttee Raises Funds to Bring Activists to NYC

The Performing the World 2014  International Organizing Committee has been doing a great job publicizing the October 10-12 conference. This month they took on a new task—raising travel funds for participants. 

They’re especially focused on those living in countries in Africa, South America and on the Asian sub-continent who otherwise might not be able to come to NYC.  Not only are their air fare and visa fees the highest of any countries, these would-be participants have little in the way of personal resources or outside sources from whom to seek support.

UnknownThe Committee is working to raise $10 000 to contribute to the air travel of people in these countries who want to share and experience PTW this year.   Denmark-based psychologist Esben Wilstrup, who has helped to lead the effort, reports that after just a few days, the campaign has raised over $3,500 via an online crowd-sourcing fundraising appeal.
