Dorset Artists' Emergency Fund

by b-side CIC in Portland, England, United Kingdom

We did it
On 30th July 2020 we successfully raised £19,095 with 120 supporters in 73 days

With events cancelled, venues closed and public gatherings restricted many Artists in Dorset/BCP can't work and urgently need our support.

Help us reach £16,000

We have over 30 applications from Artists in need in Dorset. To support all of those in need we need to raise £16,000.

We have £11,000 worth of applicants to take to the panel next week and only £2,500 to distribute.

At this moment in time we have raised just over £7,000. We've distributed £2,000 already and we are halving the remaining amount (of just over £5,000) to make sure there's definitely funds to distribute in Round 3.

Please help us build this total so we can reach more Artists sooner. We'd love to double the amount we can distribute next week!

Please share with your friends, family and colleagues.

Let's work together to ensure the Dorset arts sector stays afloat ready for the future.
