Good afternoon family,
After a couple of meetings, emails going back and forth between LXP and dub poet d’bi.young who recently visited barbados to give a poetry workshop. we have come up with a plan to bring d’bi back to Barbados to work with our family, extended family and specially invited artists.
We are looking to raise funds for her return airfare and to cover her nominal costs through a combination of crowd funding on line and through a special Iron Mic show on Saturday the 8th of September.
In addition we have a few other ideas, such as offering participation to persons who are not LXP family members, at a cost, etc. More about that later however….
The reason I am emailing now is to share with you the first of our fundraising efforts- a crowd funding site linked to twitter and facebook, which allows people to contribute via Pay Pal to our project.
The link is on my profile page or here: lxp poetry collective fundraising event
Please share this site, and ask your family, fiends, artistic contacts,etc…. to log in and support as much as they are able- $50, $100, $5 … it all adds up.
And donate a ‘lil something yourself…. I know I will; to me, having d’bi here for a friday, saturday, sunday weekend workshop of 8-10 hrs a day, just for us, is priceless, and worth a contribution
Blessing and Peace
