ARTIST EXCHANGE FUND: SUMMER / FALL 2019
Support Carlos Gomez participation in Artist Exchange Program in the U.S.!
Our love for dance and culture has brought us together. Whether in Cuba and/or the Dominican Republic, we have witnessed some transformative experiences and dreams come true. Some of our most recent travelers have been so inspired that they want to support bringing one of our current artist collective members from the Dominican Republic, Carlos Gomez, to join us in the U.S. this summer. We believe that travelers like you who have experienced first hand the positive and engaging energy that Carlos has, will help us make one of his dreams become a reality - which is to dance with all of us in the U.S. this summer and fall.
As we begin to research the process to invite Carlos to the States, we have found that there are upfront costs associated with the type of visa needed for the type of exchange we are envisioning. It is a type of visa that Carlos hasn’t applied for before and MetaMovements hasn’t hosted an artist under for past exchange participants. We hope that you can help us cover these costs.
We currently need to raise a total of $15,000 to cover all expenses, which MetaMovements artists plan to offset through paid contracts, bootcamps, event sponsors, etc. The most important expense is the initial $8000 which we need to raise within the next two weeks in order to proceed. Are you willing and able to help us raise funds to help Carlos cover these expenses through our Artist Exchange Fund?
How we can help Carlos achieve his dream...
If 10 of us donate $500:
legal and visa application fees covered
If 10 of us donate $400:
If 10 of us donate $300:
meals and living expenses covered
If 10 of us donate $200:

If 5 of us donate $100:

If 5 of us donate $50:

A Gift of $25 or more to the Artist Exchange Fund for Carlos will go a long way!
The following are additional ways to support Carlos and other artists in the collective in the U.S., Cuba and Dominican Republic:
Spread the word about MetaMovements Travel Programs
Share your MetaMovements Travel Program experience with others
Connect us to potential donors to this Artist Exchange Fund
Volunteer by helping with coordinated calls to interested travelers
Connect us to universities, organizations, companies, businesses, etc that would contract MetaMovements for our services especially during Hispanic Heritage Month (dance and percussion classes, workshops, trainings, event production, performance, dance hosting, etc)
If you are able to either donate to the fund or support us in other ways as stated above, we will be able to make this dream a reality. If we meet the initial goal, we will be able to move forward in the process for Carlos to join us in the United States this summer. We hope you can help us reach this initial $8000 goal!
Thanks in advance,
MetaMovements Artist Collective
