HOW WE STARTED...

As female Arts practitioners with East Asian Heritage, we have always felt our narratives, visibility and work regularly under represented. The lack of opportunity and lack of diverse representation in the Arts has compounded the issue of appearance and visibility for the East Asian community in this industry.

In response, we started The East Asian Ticket Club as a platform to address some of these issues, as we are keen to advocate for an Arts and Cultural environment that is more diverse and inclusive for people of minorities in the UK. It is essential that we start building a serious site of appearance and encourage the East Asian community to take their position in this growing conversation.

THE FIRST STEP

In a focused scheme of engagement, EATC is working in partnership with leading Arts and Culture Venues to promote attendance by offering free and subsidised tickets for the East Asian communities to targeted events.

To launch EATC officially in March 2019, we are working with Belgrade Theatre to offer free tickets to members of East Asian communities, especially women and younger female adults, to see the world premiere of Under The Umbrella - a new play by Amy Ng, with set and costume design by Moi Tran - EATC founding member.

FUTURE VISION & WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP

Our aims for this scheme includes building the foundations for a holistic engagement programme, facilitating various workshops, talks and community events that will engage East Asian communities of all ages, genders and backgrounds in the UK and beyond.

For the immediate run, we will use your donation to:

- Continue to create partnerships and offers with different people and organisations for the community.

- Support financial costs for daily administrative tasks for EATC events, printing communication materials, with the potential of making an annual report/publication and start building our official website.

The long-term goal is to build a sustainable platform, a catalyst to activate the East Asian and other communities into a wider conversation about identity, race, multiculturalism, collective experience and individual empowerment.

We are looking for advocators who share the same vision, with the hope that you will become EATC's Patrons, to share the commitment and support us on this journey.

Thank you,
