Allocation of funds

<p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>- Why and how you can fund Miti @ Venice Biennale 2013</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>ICI is producing by itself Miti Ruangkritya’s Imagining Acqua Alta exhibition. The total production cost is estimated at 6 160 euros including technical costs such as the art pieces shipping and the scenography, communication cost and the artist trip to Venice estimated at 2 220 euros.</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> Miti @ Venice Biennale 2013 fund rising is concerning only Miti’s trip to Venice as ICI is looking for other ways to support the other production cost. We believe that the whole project Imagining ACQUA ALTA makes sense only with the <strong>presence of Miti Ruangkritya</strong> <strong>in Venice</strong> because:</p> <p>  </p> <p> 1.</p> <p> Imagining ACQUA ALTA will be <strong>his first outbound Solo exhibition</strong></p> <p>  </p> <p> 2.</p> <p> ICI core and essential value is <strong>to make encounters happens</strong>. For a <strong>Thai young artist</strong> it would be a real chance to meet international artists from the Venice Biennale, one of the biggest event in that field.</p> <p>  </p> <p> 3.</p> <p> Imagining ACQUA ALTA is based on a <strong>confrontation</strong> between two cities (Bankgkok, Venice) but also <strong>two populations</strong>. Who better than Miti Ruangkritya can represent Thai people at Imagining ACQUA ALTA</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_0287" src=""></p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>Miti @ Venice Biennale 2013 fund rising details</strong></u></p> <p> As mentioned above the fund will help Miti to travel to Venice. We are asking your kind help to collect 1 900 euros that will be totally absorbed in the 2 220 euros cost of the trip. If the kissbanker’s fund is reaching more than 1 900 euros ICI commits to use that fund for the artist trip and beyond for the communication cost.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Artist trip to Europe costs</strong></p> <p> Roundflight tickets  Bangkok / Venice / Bangkok : 1 050 Euros</p> <p> Accomodation in  Venice : 1 170 Euros</p> <p> Total : 2 220 Euros</p> <p>  </p> <p>  </p> <p> <u><strong>- Benefices for the the Kissbankers to help with the fund rising Miti @ Venice Biennale 2013</strong></u></p> <p>  </p> <p> <strong>Thank you for your interest in the Miti @ Venice Biennale 2013 project.</strong> We hope that you share our core willing to make Miti’s trip to Venice. So if you are an individual and you wish to participate we created different levels of funding with some benefices accordingly.</p> <p>  </p> <p> <em>You are our main financial support to date. Please feel free to pass the word and share your precious comments with us</em>.</p> <p>  </p> <p> Hope to welcome you soon on our facebook page, our website or even better ….in Venice!</p> <p>  </p> <p> Olivier Perpoint et Chi Phan</p> <p>  </p> <p> <img alt="Img_0272" src=""></p>
