This week has been so busy that I could easily write several blogs all detailing the extent of my exciting, engrossing and sordid artistic endeavours. However, this particular post will focus on the most pressing of matters, and one which you can get involved with.
I am part of an arts collaborative named SCIBase, which is a collaborative project between BasementArtsProjects, Leeds and SCI, Liverpool. We are currently seeking funding in order to hold an exhibition, residencies and workshop programmes in New York next year. I personally am looking to host a series of workshops dealing with the paint making process, along with the history and implications associated with paint as a medium.
In order to apply for full funding from other arts organisations SCIBase need to raise an initial £2000, which we are hoping to raise via Kickstarter. This is where we need your help. We are asking for you to pledge money if you can.
There are many incentives for pledging, all of which can be viewed on our page of the Kickstarter website, where you can also pledge towards the funding we require: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/scibasecolonize/scibase-colonize
The most intriguing insensitive for artists is the fact that you are eligible to have a postcard sized image of your work included in the exhibition if you are an artist pledging £12. This is a great and unique opportunity to be part of the collaboration.
If any of this excites, intrigues or delights you in any way, then we would love for you to pledge whatever you can. Please also let people you know about our project. We are a fair way to reaching our target, but we now only have a few days to reach it, so your contribution would be very much appreciated.
