Hi Everyone! Make a date with Troubaganger this Sunday, 4 December as we celebrate the International 16 Days of International Activism (25 November to 10 December).

FYI, Katagender is a collective of artists and activists who met at a workshop organised by Sisters in Islam a couple of months ago. After the workshop, a group of artists and activists decided to do something for the 16 days of activism.

During the whole duration of the 16 days , Katagender will be working in tandem with three NGOs (Sisters In Islam, Malaysian AIDS Council and Women's Aid Organisation) and on their own to carry out various artistic activities to raise public awareness about gender-based violence. Those activities inlcude mural paintings, performance art, invisible theatre and other events.

In conjunction with Katagender's roster of activities, Troubadours and Doppelganger have decided to pitch in by devoting our 4 December gig to support the worthy cause. Gender-based violence is one of the most heinous things in society today. It's the root of so much social injustice and disempowerment. Most victims and survivors of gender-based violence are are women and children. Stop the cycle of violence.

To find out more about Katagender, go to their blogsite.

Come and support this worthy cause and enjoy an evening of wonderful music and readings by an almost all-women line-up at our Troubaganger 16 Days of Activism Special. Half of the proceeds will be donated to an NGO tba.
