I have been accepted to participate in a 7-day workshop
intensive with La Pocha Nostra in Tucson Arizona this August.
La Pocha Nostra are a San Francisco based "trans-disciplinary
arts organization" and I will be collaborating and performing
alongside experimental performance artists, theorists, activists
and students from all over the world!.
I am seeking some help with workshop and accommodation costs
while I am there. This is an amazing opportunity to challenge my
art making process and learn from some renowned performance

Every year, La Pocha conducts a summer and a winter performance
art school in which Pocha's radical pedagogy (a performance
methodology that has been developed during the last 10 years) is
