Community Support Program
In the light of the current challenging financial crisis, S.O.M.A 2023 offers the chance for communal support, where you are able to donate or benefit from a small push.
You can donate whether you are participating or not. Any amount, no matter how small, is helpful and will be added to other donations. The final sum will be spread equally among individuals with limited financial resources who are challenged to join.
If you would like to donate please write to us.
Participants who will benefit from the financial support will in exchange participate as Helpers. Helpers attend the entirety of one of the two weekends (Dance-Scapes Intensive or Contact Camp) in exchange for pre-determined tasks on location and between workshops times.
Tasks will include pre-camp, on location, and post-camp logistics and help. Parking organization & guidance of participants upon arrival, Carpooling and pick ups, Cleaning of WCs, Showers & Dance studio, Cooking & Food court set up, Set up and Break Camp logistics, Drivers with cars for production & emergencies, Certified First aid assistance, Photography & Videography of the whole festival, Archiving, among other tasks...
Helpers are required to attend the full weekend and are asked to be available one day before and after camp. We will have a Helpers team meeting prior to camp (Dates and other details to be communicated closer to the camp date).
This year, We offer 5 helper spots for the Dance-Sacpes Intensive and 8 helper spots for Contact Camp. Priority goes to students, Dance and theatre students, artists and currently unemployed individuals.
The deadline for application is Saturday, June 25th, 2023.
If this is something that can ease your challenge, please do not hesitate to write to us explaining your situation and what you can help with and offer in exchange.
