To achieve our work within, as well as tour out of, the community, AsOne needs friends, businesses and Captains of Industry to invest in and trumpet it’s excellence in return for lots of benefits ranging from profiling, corporate entertainment and gala performances, to staff rewards and in-house workshops. If you can help with an investment of any value £10 – £1000 – we would be able to develop our work even more; especially our educational work with students and OAP’s.
Curves franchisees of Weymouth, Dorchester, Wimborne, Ferndown, Salisbury and Exmouth invested rising £2000 in AsOne Theatre’s Lets Do It! 2007 autumn tour. It is very much hoped this partnership will continue with the encouragement of Arts and Business SW who awarded AsOne £1000 from their ‘Strike A Match’ scheme.
Some 30 small businesses have invested around £3000 in us.
Arts and Business New Partners encourages business to try something new with the arts; one-off projects provide much needed cash but A & B want to see this commitment go further by encouraging wider, deeper and more ambitious partnerships generating clear benefits for all.
AsOne joined hands with Advantage Digital Print in 2008/9 who, in return for profiling of their school year books, helped us with an in-kind investment equal to £1000 worth of posters, flyers and programmes whilst spreading the word about award winning AsOne.
And now, AsCend Physical Theatre has a Kickstarter page………Take a look, please, please ,please spread the word!
Kickstarter is a new way to fund creative projects. Project creators set a funding goal and deadline. If people like a project, they can pledge money to make it happen. Funding on Kickstarter is all-or-nothing — projects must reach their funding goals to receive any money. Mozart, Beethoven, Whitman, Twain, and other artists funded works in similar ways — not just with help from large patrons, but by soliciting money from smaller patrons – and AsCend’s incentives are particularly appealing 😉
