Join Studio 180’s A NEW MODEL Campaign
Studio 180 Theatre is launching its A NEW MODEL Fundraising Campaign. We believe that theatre has the power to positively change how we look at women in our media. If you share that belief, we invite you to make a donation and help us reach our goal to raise $15,000 by December 31, 2014.
You can help create A NEW MODEL of femininity for a young woman in your life.
You don’t have to look far to find unhealthy and unrealistic images of women around you. Just open a magazine, turn on the television or look up while riding the TTC, and you’ll see how our media creates punishing and impossible standards of beauty and femininity. We invite you to join us as we envision A NEW MODEL for young women.
This fall, Studio 180 Theatre’s production of NSFW (Not Safe For Work), by Lucy Kirkwood, dissects our media’s savagery toward women. It will be a catalyst for important discussions about the way we portray women in our popular culture. It will also act as the focal point for our Studio 180 IN CLASS workshops with high school students, engaging young people in critical discussions about how we look at and treat women.
Here’s where we need YOUR help.
As you know, our productions, outreach and education activities require resources and individual gifts from people like YOU, to enable us to continue delivering the highest quality of programming possible.
This fall, we’re casting contemporary views of models aside and are launching our A NEW MODEL campaign, with the aim of raising $15,000 by December 31. If you believe that theatre has the power to transform our world, we’re inviting you to advocate for A NEW MODEL of femininity by making a donation in honour of a young woman or girl in your life.
If you like, we will also post the name of the young woman you honour on a special page on our website and in a dedicated post on our social media channels (Twitter and Facebook).
Together, we can work to create A NEW MODEL and empower our next generation of men and women to reject existing media images of women and change the way they are represented in our culture. If you share this goal and would like to honour a young woman in your life, please consider giving, or – if you’ve given in the past – increasing your gift. Thanks to an anonymous donor, any new or increased donations will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000, so the impact of a gift received between October 15 and December 31 may be doubled.
I thank you for your continued support and generosity.
