Two brand new projects to widen the population discussion. Help us for as little as $2.00!!!
3 June 2018
We have launched our first ever on-line crowd funding campaign (in addition to the end of financial year appeal). Crowd funding is an increasingly popular way for people to raise money to set up specific projects and can be a great way to gain exposure and a new audience.
SPA is raising funds to launch a mini web series called ‘Tough Crowd‘. We are excited to announce Melbourne Comedian Rod Quantock has come on board to assist. In his relaxed and amusing ‘conversations in the pub’ style Rod will interview fellow comedians, entertainers and others about the challenges faced in discussing population in the wider community. SPA is seeking support through our Pozible campaign to fund the whole project, including equipment costs, expenses for our ‘actors’, venue hire, promotion and all the other costs associated with the challenge of making a video series!
The Pozible campaign can be found here and Rod Quantock’s lively promotional video here. We would be delighted to have your support and ask too for you to encourage friends, family, and your networks to play a part. This project may appeal to people who might not otherwise consider joining SPA – but they have to know about it first! Even if they choose not to fund the project it is still good publicity.
We are also proud to announce that our PopCulture web page is now up and running – you can find it here. Have a look at our youth unemployment video and share it. Be proud because you and other SPA members previously helped fund this through a donations drive. This site will host future PopCulture videos. That same video can also be found on our newly reinvigorated YouTube channel here. While we plan to undertake online promotion of the videos you, as members, can play a role by sharing them widely, especially with those particularly affected by issues such as job insecurity and housing affordability. Who knows, after seeing the videos they too may be motivated to contribute to our ‘Tough Crowd’ campaign!
