Weʼre raising £3,000 to fund 16 Nicholson Street's programming and artists from 2018-2019.
- Glasgow, UK
Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
16 Nicholson is a curatorial entity with its core interest in collaboration and critical discussions and discourses between those involved within the Scottish art sphere. By introducing and encouraging collaborations between established and more emerging artists we hope to develop an inclusive, engaging, and intellectually rich space. As of September 2018 we'll also be housing Glasgow Zine Library, and we're absolutely thrilled about it. Established in 2016, all organisation and programming is managed by Director/Curator Isabella Shields and Gallery Manager/Curator Ben Soedira, while a dedicated team of volunteers make up our invigilation staff.
Artists have largely been paid through the reception of Hope Scott Trust funds, for which we are incredibly grateful. Unfortunately we haven't received Creative Scotland funding so this page is one of our only means of raising funds. We're in the process of reapplication and have our fingers crossed, but until then the money raised on this page will ensure that we pay artists a small fee at least, and if we reach our targets, will be used to facilitate installation and gallery maintenance.
Our programming until August next year involves:
Glasgow Zine Library's Opening 22.09.18 // Adam Benmakhlouf's Tarot Workshop // GSA POC Society's Residency: A Clapback // Christmas Fundraising Auction 2018 // Debbie Young - January 2019 // James St. Findlay - February 2019 // Temjai Cholsiri - March/April 2019 // Spring Residency: Hayley Dawson & Zolatrope // Summer Residency: Josephine Lee, Holly Osborne, Helen Robinson//
Any and all contributions make a huge difference and we're so thankful for anything that anyone can give!
