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 nonprofit.

The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

Story

Nice Time Arts is a new partnership focused on accessible community arts, formed by Vicky of Pen Fight and Ellie of Still Ill OK.

We offer a programme of specialist art programmes, workshops, and creative socials solely in wheelchair accessible venues.

We coordinate a range of creative groups that will run freely and regularly, including a monthly Queer Craft Club, monthly Zine Workshop and twice monthly #spoonieartist group.

We offer a one-to-one support, mentoring and facilitation service; we can help to coordinate the creative practice of artists who have found barriers to their practice, or showing their work, over the years for whatever reasons.

We offer a variety of flexible volunteering and training opportunities for adults. This includes specific training and a tailored volunteer role that suits your requirements and goals.

Our driving motivation is the shared conviction that art should be (but currently isn’t always) fun, accessible & affordable for everyone. Art should not only be made accessible when it is ‘socially prescribed’ in the form of a creative wellbeing course.

We’re currently crowdfunding for the following items to provide workshops in an accessible space in Manchester:

- Risograph printer (quoted approx. £1000)

- Two Risograph barrels + inks (£500)

- A mini printing-press (£239)

- Industrial paper-cutter (between £200-500)

- Other miscellaneous workshop equipment

Although it's a large initial expense to buy the risograph machine and drums, the inks and prints, moving forward, are reasonably priced. They are widely known for being better value than most other standard printing techniques or fine art processes. This means we can make and duplicate really stunning prints cheaply, and we can give these prints away really cheaply too; hopefully even give some away for free. This is important to us because it means that there isn't a financial barrier to someone owning something we make - whether it's a print or zine.

We don’t want to make work that is just for rich people to enjoy; poor and marginalised folks deserve nice things too!
