Fundraising Event & Party
Wednesday, June 15, 2011, 7:30 pm
Human Negotiations, a long-term book project exploring the lives of Bangkok sex workers through images and text, will make its debut in the city where it began.
On Wednesday June, 15th 2011, Bangkok’s most vibrant new arts space, Opposite, will hold a one-time-only fundraising event for the project, offering a sneak preview of the book (to be published on June 25), a multimedia screening featuring music by Ryuichi Sakamoto, a Q&A with the book’s authors, and sales of posters, limited-edition postcards and special-edition prints. The night continues with WTF’s dj serving up 70’s funk, rare Bossa, and post-house beats.
The event comes hot off the heels of a fundraising campaign on creative crowdsourcing site Kickstarter, which ends on June 9 http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1647641187/human-negotiations/. The authors ask for anyone interested in supporting the project to please make their pledges NOW.
All proceeds will go towards the book’s printing costs.
