Dancing in the streets

Amnesty International are looking to recruit street performers to support human rights as part of Freedom Week 2006(their annual awareness and fundraising week 31 july – 6 august)

Money collected on the streets this year will support their crisis campaigning work, in particular their work to stop human rights abuses in Darfur, Sudan.

To help raise the profile of Freedom Week, and boost public donations, for the first time this year, they’re asking artists, buskers and performing arts students to give up half an hour or an hour of their time to busk on Freedom Day, their street appeal day. In Wellington that’s Thursday 3rd August.

This is an invite to dance for love in the street to support Amnesty International’s Freedom Day.

What: Freedom Day street performance with Wellington Batucada (for Amnesty International’s Freedom Week)

When: Thursday 3rd August, between 5 and 6pm

Where: Corner of Lambton Quay and Featherston St (in front of Old Bank Arcade)

Costumes: To be advised

Other: There will be no practices, so you will need to be confident in following carnival/samba reggae moves as lead by a teacher and freestyling as well.

Shake it for a good cause, or just go along and show your support.
