We will be organizing a Lusaka V-Day performance for mid-February 2019. V-Day is a global movement to end violence against women and girls born out of The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler.
In February 2018, we held an incredible event featuring V-Day, global essays addressing sexual violence as well as original poetry and music. It was a collaboration of Zambians and Americans with over 100 people attending. For 2019, we would like to take the event to a larger stage and audience, and invite people to submit their own essays, poems/spoken word, artwork, music and even dance all focused on ending violence against women.
We would like to develop an application process to solicit a range of entries that we will then screen and shortlist. We would like to hold this at the Lusaka Playhouse as a fundraiser for a local organization working to address Gender Based Violence in Zambia. Please let us know if you would like to volunteer and be involved in organizing this event.
Location, exact date time, and details is TBD.
