Who we are
Hello! We are a group of 2nd year Middlesex BA Music Business and Arts Management students who are organising a charity based music event called #WomenTogether.
Our Event And the story behind it
#WomenTogether is an event that will seek to celebrate all women and raise money for an extremely worthwhile charity at the same time!
The event will be hosted on Tuesday 20th of March at Simmons bar in Euston (London), which you can take a look at here! Entrance to the event will be free but we will be asking for voluntary donations to "Hollaback!" , a very special charity that we hope to support through our event.
"Hollaback!" is a global, people-powered movement looking to end harassment. We have chosen them as we feel they share our goals towards supporting women. Feel free to have a look at their website for more information.
In addition to celebrating women, we will use our event to inform and teach as many people as possible about the charity and the work they do. We will also be asking those who come to the event for voluntary donations. These will go straight to the charity, so we hope people will dig deep and support this very worthwhile organisation while enjoying a good night out!
With musicians and speakers taking part in #WomenTogether, we hope we can provide an entertaining, empowering and fun night that seeks to support all women who have gone through harassment.
WHY we need your help
Running an events involves some costs, so we are running this crowdfunding campaign in the hope that some generous campaign donors will enable us to make this the best possible night for a cause we all truly feel passionate about. To make this an event to remember, we are looking to raise between £200 and £500.
If we reach our minimum target of £200....
We will be able to pay the venue and costs of food and travel for our musicians, speakers and host:
- £100: Venue hire
- £100: Travel and food costs for musicians, speakers and hosts (equating to £18.5 pounds for a day travel card, plus one meal each per person)
If we reach our top target of £500 ...
If we hit our top target, this would be absolutely fantastic as this will enable us to do a number of things like decorate the venue, create informative leaflets about female harassment, hire a photographer and recognise the contribution of the talent giving their time for free at the event or working behind the scenes. A breakdown of what we would do with the additional £300 is as follows:
£100: Hire of photographer for evening
£20: Decoration of the venue for the event
£180: Last but by no means least, this will enable us to make a very small gesture of our appreciation to artists, speakers and other event contributors (e.g. graphic designers) as we absolutely feel they should get paid for their work. Unfortunately we don't have the budget for this at the moment.
If we should be so lucky that we raise more money than our top target...
Any further proceeds will go towards supporting "Hollaback!" and their cause!
