NEWS: Raja Theatre Fundraiser

Heart of the World is a venture to purchase the Raja theatre on the Drive and convert it into an accessible performing arts space / repertory theatre.
To accomplish this, they need to raise a lot of money by the end of this week, ideally in the form of $200 refundable shares. A fundraiser was held at the Media Club on Tuesday night to support the project.

Time is running out! Join the good fight with local hero Jhayne Holmes as she and her band of rebels, miscreants and true believers take on the forces of apathy, real estate and city hall to build this city a future! There's an old theatre on commercial drive: it can be torn down to make another parking garage, a self-help day retreat for middle managers, or even more housing for the rich. . .

OR IT COULD BE SOMETHING YOU ACTUALLY WANT.

THE HEART OF THE WORLD will be a place where any old artist, actor, film maker, hip kid, kindred spirit, and idea monger can find an outlet (and, more importantly, audience) for the creative endeavour of their choice! There is only one week left to make this idea a reality. Thousands of dollars are being committed and even that may not be enough! Spread the word! Buy shares! Nag your rich friends! Make the city scream for it! The Heart of The World arts centre is a place by the people, of the people and for the people.

AND THE ONLY WAY IT GETS BUILT IS YOU!

(who else is gonna bother? The government? Starbucks? Oprah?)

Join us! The Heart of the World is waiting!
