Can you support us to get the last 41 amsterdammers signatures?

Dear All, The final countdown starts to reach the 41 signatures from amsterdammers so our petition can be heard by Gemeente Amsterdam. Reaching a new space for our fourth theatre project in Amsterdam will be challenging this year. Despite personal struggles, we're determined to overcome the hurdles of finding actors, subsidies and ensuring a successful premiere.

We won't give up, but we need your strength. Beyond the new project, after three original plays and six participating actresses, we're ready to build a space in Amsterdam. It's about more than premiering plays; it's about creating a diverse hub for different arts, fostering professional growth and providing opportunities for new talent. It's about creating our own space, as artists, as women, as residents. To paraphrase some words of Virginia Woolf: "If we have five hundred a year and a room of our own; if we have the habit of freedom and the courage to write exactly what we think, then opportunity will come!" That's why we are initiating a petition to the Gemeente for an accessible space for THE RED BOX. Would you be so kind as to consider supporting our cause by signing our petition to the Gemeente to get a space for our cultural projects? We need to collect 200 signatures from "Amsterdammers" so that the Gemeente listens to us, this is the final countdown to collect them, and we only need 41 more!, regardless of the signatures people living in other cities or countries may give us, that's also very important. Your support means the world to us! Your signature is crucial, and/or spreading the word to your friends and family would also be a big help. Please, after clicking "sign" with your name and surname, immediately check your email for the confirmation link to validate your signature. Without this step, your support will not be recorded. You can see your support by verifying your name (or "anonymous" if you checked this box) in the list of signatories at the bottom of the post. We sincerely appreciate your support! A cordial greeting. Carmen
