A month ago I started an Online Store that creates merchandise carrying quotes / phrases / poems most loved by the people who read and follow my work. The store has been doing incredibly well and I would now like to pay it forward and connect the work of making a black girl’s work visible to that of making other black girls live.
The store has just launched a relief fund: [BLACK GIRL LIVE] designed to assist black, queer, womxn Theatre Practioners and Poets based in South Africa who are struggling financially, psychologically and spiritually during this time.
In the wake of a pandemic with no end in sight, and the lack of governmental and institutional support for black, queer, womxn Theatre Practitioners, Poets, and Creatives at large, it has become apparent that we are each other’s lifelines.
I, Koleka Putuma, pledge R10 to the fund for every item purchased from the store.
You can assist by spreading the word and making a donation directly to the fund.
Donations start at R50.
