News update: We did it! We even exceeded our target. Thank you so much to all who donated or help out by sharing the campaign. Look out in the new year for announcements on how this free space will be made available.
This year, on Tuesday 30 November, we are taking part in Giving Tuesday, the day of global giving.
We want to try and raise £1600 to fund free studio space for artists.
This figure (which would match our fantastic donations from last year!) could fund approximately 60 hours of studio space, or 2 hours each for up to 30 artists. Sounds like a lot? Well, every little bit helps – a £5 donation would pay for around 15 minutes of studio time.*
We’re grateful for all support – no matter how small – so we can continue to connect artists and audiences through investigative and collaborative activities at our studios and beyond. We also know that many in our community support us, and the work we do, in ways that are other than/beyond financial. Thank you.
