Today is the first day of fundraising through Crowdfunder for our Mercian Arts Gallery Project
You can read all about it here
We are looking to raise £3,000 to set up the unit at Ferrers Art and Craft Centre as an exhibition space for Artists and Crafters looking to move from a hobby to a career.
The first step on this path is always difficult - getting galleries to show your work. We aim to make that transition easier by providing exhibition and teaching space as part of a co-operative. We all pay towards and help staff the space.
As part of the local community we also provide workshops and classes at very reasonable rates.
The great thing about Crowdfunder is that the project is not just asking for money for nothing but providing rewards for pledges of money - you help us get off the ground and we pay back with the reward you choose.
We only have 48 days on the programme, so please pledge as much as you can.
And don't forget to come and visit us with some moral support :)
