Dear friends, partners and supporters of City of Women,

We would like to draw your attention to the 19th International Festival of Contemporary Arts – City of Women which will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia during October 2-13.

One of the peaks of this year's festival edition will be the visit of The Pocha Nostra, a prominent and well-known group of daring artists who will perform with their newest performance CORPO INSURRECTO 3.0: The Robo-Proletariat as well as organize a workshop for local artists.

Due to a current arts funding crisis, they have just launched a very bold Indiegogo campaign to be able to raise the funds for the upcoming Pocha Nostra October tour (besides the City of Women festival, they will also perform at Queer Festival in Zagreb, Croatia). We kindly invite you to check it out (especially the video) and if you can contribute or forward the link to your community of colleagues.
