Voices for Fennie
A fundraising event at Zajia Lab, Beijing
Sunday July 13
As many of you already know, Fennie (Zheng Miao) is an established and well-loved member of China’s artistic community, performing for many years as a musician and vocalist in many bands and groups.
In the last few weeks a long-term heart condition has considerably worsened, and Fennie was admitted to intensive care in Beijing a few days ago. Healthcare is an expensive business, and Fennie’s condition has placed a huge financial and mental strain on her.
We now need to step up and help relieve the pressure on her heart and mind!
On Sunday, 13 July, a street market and concert will take place to raise funds for Fennie’s hospital bills and medicines. This will be a remarkable event, uniting all sections of Beijing’s independent artistic communities behind a single issue. We see this as a worthy cause for all the artistic communities in China to rally around, initiating an on-going and productive dialogue amongst our various groups.
2 pm – to late: Street market outside Zajia lab. Artists, artisans, designers and Fennie’s friends will bring objects for sale.
Partecipating artists include: Xiao He 小河, Zuo Xiao Zuzhou 左小祖咒, Mengqi 孟奇, Megumi Shimizu, Yanzi (Zaban 杂瓣), Sun Shaokun , Lin Zenghui 李增辉 and many others…
15–17pm: Performance inside Zajia Lab
Artists: Xiao Budian (Chinese new folk), Dongzi (Chinese /folk), Feng Hao and Wuquan (experimental performance/audience interaction), Layer (ambient), Yang Ye (traditional instruments), Aporia (vocals) , Mat Holmes (voice+guitar)
Tickets for performance: 80 RMB
(All proceeds from the street market and the performance go to Fennie’s hospital bills and medicines)
