This year Mama Quilla were awarded a conditional grant from the Arts Council of England to produce a three-week run of The Singing Stones, a triad of plays exploring the role of women in the Arab revolutions, at the Arcola Theatre in February 2015. However this was a conditional award requiring us to raise a further £15,000. Despite having successfully obtained awards from the Peggy Ramsay Foundation and the Unity Theatre Trust we still needed to raise more and so embarked several funding initiatives including a crowd funding campaign. Through which we raised £4,025.
The funds raised from this campaign will go towards our set design costs, marketing/advertising costs and the costs of producing an animation sequence based on Middle Eastern graphic novels for the play's ending
