£1,020raised of £2,200 target by 35 supporters

    Weʼve raised £1,020 to help fund "Amy Conway's Super Awesome World" at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

    Glasgow, United Kingdom
    Funded on Sunday, 24th September 2017

    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.


    Amy Conway's Super Awesome World is a wonderful, interactive performance about how computer gaming (and gaming in general) is good for your mental health. The show takes you on a journey through the darkest of times and helps you to build the skills you might need to fend off the darkness that can sometimes over take your life.

    We are bringing this show to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe so we can show it to as many people as possible. We have won the Autopsy Award from Summerhall which has taken away any up front costs from the venue, but there are still many other costs to cover.

    So far we have made a set from scratch (in our living room), gathered a costume, and previewed in Glasgow and London. But we still need help!

    The costs of putting on a show at the festival are quite high, accommodation is at a premium (average £1000 per room), and we like to make sure that anyone helping us can be paid. We are asking you to help us with the costs as we know you might not be able to make it up to Edinburgh to support us by buying tickets for the show.

    So you know what the money will be used for, here is a quick breakdown of costs:

    £10 pays for 1 hour of a professional flyerer to help promote the show. Amy and I will also be flyering for the show, but the additional support of flyerers always helps. The ideal goal would be to have 2 flyerers for 2 hours per day, which totals £1000 for flyerers.
    £20 pays for one day of technical support by Clive our technician. He will be needed by us for 29 hours over the festival which comes to a total of £580.
    £50 covers one-quarter of the cost of the posters and flyers.
    £100 covers the costume (including spares).
    £200 covers the full amount of the posters and flyers.
    £250 covers the cost of the materials for the set.
    £300 covers half of the cost of the director.

    If we manage to cover our costs at the festival without this money we will donate it all to the Samaritans as they feature heavily in the show.

      Hello! We are part way through the month and thought we should let you know how we are doing. We have had reviews from The Scotsman (4 stars), London City Nights (4 stars), Three Weeks (4 stars), and Edinburgh Festivals Magazine (5 stars). We have also been nominated for the Flying Artichoke award from the Scottish Theatre Arts Club, and will find out on Monday if we have won (fingers crossed!). Thanks so much for your help and support, please do share the crowdfunding link with anyone you think might be interested in helping us out!
