In an email from the organisers of the 2nd Kurdish Youth Festival I was told that the main goal for them right now is fundraising. This is going to be an awesome event and they need your financial support! Every bit helps and you can donate any amount by clicking on the big blue ‘donate now’ button. Donations are accepted through the Kurdish Youth Festival’s PayPal account.
Check out their website here. See the poster for the event here (print it out and post it in your area). Or watch their video here. And don’t forget to donate here. If you have a blog or website, announce the festival! Ask your readers to support this worthwhile event with a small donation.
If you can make it to Dallas, TX in January 2011, the festival will have three evenings of music, dance and celebrations, featuring popular Kurdish singers and musicians. There will also be two full days of debates, panels, roundtables, workshops and trainings. Finally, they will host the ‘Kurds Got Talent’ talent show. First place winner will receive a roundtrip ticket to Kurdistan. Overall it sounds as though it will be an unforgettable three days.
