The To Skin a Cat Fundraiser is an evening of music and an exhibition of one of a kind artwork by invited South African artists. All proceeds will raise funds for the production of a film documentary ‘To Skin a Cat’ - a campaign aimed at saving the leopard populations in southern Africa by changing cultural and religious thinking on the use of leopard skins as ceremonial dress. At the heart of the campaign is the documentary film following Tristan Dickerson of ‘Panthera’ as he tries to create a high-quality and affordable synthetic fur to combat the demand for real leopard furs used for traditional garments.
There will be live performances by Thomas Krane and Aidan Cornhill.
