£390raised of £2,000 target by 5 supporters

Weʼre raising £2,000 to Help fund several major public street art projects within our city centre and help people engage and enjoy their surroundings.

What is crowdfunding?

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.


Earlier this year we got Austrian street Artist Tabby over to do 2 awesome pieces of street art in Carlisle. He did this for free as he believed in my vision and I funded his costs. The public response was massively positive and the body of worldwide research is staggering as to how having public art around a city can massively improve how people interact with and perceive their surroundings...and it looks ace! In my work I am lucky enough to come into contact with many other world famous street artists. I travel a lot and it really strikes me as strange how street art is not part of our surroundings. I have the power to change this...with your help! The money raised is to help fund the costs for paint, travel for the artists and lift hire for large buildings. We already have 4 brilliant artists whoa re ready to come and keen to help and 5 landlords who are very keen to offer us space on their buildings and support to the artists. I am taking no money from this project in fact I am starting it off by contributing to something I and others really feel will help improve Carlisle for the local people, the businesses in and around the centre and inspire more cultural initiatives for the North West. Your support would be massively appreciated if you feel the same. Lets brighten up our surroundings. Thank you
