Hi - I pledged and also wrote you on your email a few months ago - but never received either an answer nor the access to the Race & Philosophy course I had signed up for. Could you please give a note what happened?

Performance Philosophy has jump-started an international network of thought-action that pushes performance research into new directions.

Avanti! ... is apparently short on value - according to what measure? - so I've added this string of words to make up the difference.

Einav Katan-Schmid 10th May 2019

I am very grateful for having performance philosophy as an interdisciplinary and international network of artists and scholars who pursue thinking as a performative activity. This field is liberating. Knowledge is something that we do! Here’s to reaching the finish line! 🍷

Claire Maria 10th May 2019

Thank you for supporting non-traditional and non-affiliated scholars as well as those of us who work in academia. I really believe in the work this group is doing and I look forward to being more involved in the future. High-fives to all!

I would give much more towards this but alas I am a (very) poor student and can only spare a small amount; I guess it's more a symbolic gesture in light of recent events. In times where higher powers fear experts and academics and adequate funding is not made readily available for projects that make real changes on the contemporary landscape, I'm glad I can contribute in some small way towards your work.

The labour of those who have from the outset conceived, planned, delivered, maintained, and inspired Performance Philosophy has been a mark of genuine generosity without promise of return. Any donation to this cause resonates as a faint echo from those who value those efforts and have the means to respond in another currency.

Rea Dennis 6th May 2019

Good luck with it. So much academic work gets done by passionate people like the PP team. Thank you for all your work
