University of Gloucestershire is looking for sponsors to support an event in aid of Gloucestershire Domestic Abuse Support Service (GDASS)

The University’s Creative Writing department has joined V-Day 2018, a global campaign set up by Eve Ensler, creator of The Vagina Monologues, to help stop violence against women and girls. Over the last 20 years, V-Day’s campaigns have raised over $100 million globally in over 200 countries, benefiting 13,000 local charities.

A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant and a PrayerA Memory, a Monologue, a Rant and a Prayer

Creative Writing students at the University of Gloucestershire will participate in this global initiative by putting on a multi-media benefit performance of A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant and a Prayer (MMRP) on February 22 2018 at its Park campus in Cheltenham. The performance will include dramatic monologues, written by some of the biggest names of contemporary literature and drama, such as Maya Angelou and Eve Ensler and will be complemented by an exhibition of art photography and a post-show discussion with Sally Morrissey, Support Service Manager at GDASS.

The event is supported by Mayor of Cheltenham, Councillor Klara Sudbury, who will be attending.

All funds raised through ticket sales, donations and sponsorships will be given to charity, with the main beneficiary being the Gloucestershire Domestic Abuse Support Service (GDASS).

To make this event a huge success, the Creative Writing team is looking for sponsors to lend their support and make a real difference to people in Gloucestershire who need the support of GDASS.

The event will be promoted widely on social media, through regional press and online to thousands of people living in the county.

Sponsorship packages start at just £100 with a headline sponsor package available for £500.

To register your interest or to obtain any further details, please email vday.uog.mmrp@gmail.com or speak to Senja Andrejevic-Bullock, Lecturer in Dramatic Writing, 01242 714 695.
