Next Thursday 21 May Spacex will be launching their Kickstarter – an online fundraising campaign – to raise £10,000 towards two artist residencies and a series of public events. Enabling the artistic process remains at the core of what Spacex does and they need our support in order to continue this work.
To say thank you for all of your support, Spacex are opening the gallery on Saturday 23 May from 12am-4pm; there will be afternoon tea and cake but most importantly an opportunity to talk to the staff about the future of Spacex.
The campaign encourages backers to pledge a donation and in doing so acquire art that has been produced as part of Spacex projects and by artists who have worked with them in recent years. A variety of items from the Spacex archive are also available to choose from, as a thank you for donating.
If this Kickstarter campaign is successful it will cover the cost of two 6-week residencies and a series of public events including studio visits and an associated learning programme, all to take place in 2015-16.
The all-or-nothing funding system through Kickstarter means that if we don’t reach the full amount of 10,000 within the 30-day campaign period, Spacex won’t receive any of the funding and this is when we will need your support to reach our target.
