I’m really excited to be working on this Pozible campaign. To see an organisation officially launch and give people with a disability access to the arts. Helps us Launch Raspberry Ripple Productions!! I’ve been working as Publicist for almost a year through Lovelly Communications and am so excited to see this campaign LIVE.
Raspberry Ripple Productions is a Disability Led theatre company. This campaign will help to build a fully accessible website, officially launch and put on many more brilliant performances that are inclusive. We aim to raise $9,500 – and hopefully more.
Raspberry Ripple aims to create compelling theatre of a professional standard using disabled and mainstream performers, writers, directors, designers and technical artists.
Why is a company like Raspberry Ripple needed? Because disabled performers have been excluded from mainstream performing arts for too long.
Raspberry Ripple operates around the Social Model of disability, which says that the barriers put in place by a world designed for ‘normal people’ disables us far more than our bodies ever will. Disabled people are excluded from work, education, recreation – and of course, the performing arts.
As a small team and a start up, we have limited funds to operate on. We rely upon grants and income from our productions to continue. Such an undertaking as an accessible website has to date been beyond our grasp but we know without it, we cannot grow and fully offer the services to those who need them.
We ask you to help support us by donating to our campaign and helping us to raise awareness for disability in the arts.
