With a few days still to run, the campaign is going well. We've reached our FIRST target of £2,500. Now we've achieved that one, we don't really want you to stop pledging, because we really need more! So we've set a "stretch target" of £7,500! You see, we've applied to the Arts Council for considerably more than this, and by getting a crowd of people to contribute a number of small amounts, we give them the confidence that their investment is sound.
Our aim at 24:7 is to develop people in all aspects of theatre-making, not only as writers and actors, but as a producer or director, or improving your marketing or technical skills.
With more cash, we'll be able to programme extra events during the weekend, including rehearsed readings and the staging of plays in development.
Last year one of our 'extras', War Stories, a collaboration between 24:7 and You Are Here festival in Australia, went on to the Re:play season at HOME and has had interest from the British Council, amongst others.
So join us in making more things happen for more people in development!
