CALL OUT: Preston’s creative community commission (deadline July 24, 2020)

CALL OUT: Targeting PRESTON’s creative community affected by lockdown (i.e. you lost income).
DEADLINE: JULY 24, 2020 – 5pm.

This call out is for all creatives in Preston – artists, musicians, photographers, performers.

I’ve been trying to raise £1,000 so that I can commission several Preston creatives to produce new work, and help ease their financial strain during these difficult times. Fundraiser details here – you can still donate: https://www.gofundme.com/f/preston-artists-coronavirus-hardship-fund

One of the commissions will be picked by Preston’s No.1 independent music venue The Ferret, with the aim of that performance.art to be performed/displayed at their venues after lockdown.

The other commissions will be exhibited or performed in the city sometime after lockdown.

All you have to do to apply is send some brief details of yourself and your idea, and demonstrate a link to Preston (i.e. you live in the city or work in the city.

Thanks to everyone for their support so far – shares and donations – including The Ferret who have made a big donation in order to be part of this community funder for Preston.

As lockdown is slowly lifting, the fundraiser must now come to an end so the deadline to apply for funding is Friday July 24, 5pm.
