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.

Who supports the Arts in Dorset? (4 days left)

A massive thank you to everyone who has donated so far. 

We are so close to our initial target of £10,000.
Can you help our local artists by assisting us in reaching this target?

Please share far and wide and personally invite your friends, family and colleagues to donate / share. 

We are crossing all our limbs and fundraising as much as we can to reach our stretch target of £20,000 (because there are almost 30 more artists waiting for urgent financial support). 

Here's a collective of professionals in the Arts asking for your help:

(We recorded this at 10 days... there's now only 4 days left!) 

Stuart Semple gave us a shout out: 

This is Artist, Angela Heron Watkins, talking about the importance of the Arts: 

Don't forget to check out our rewards and if there's something your friend make like, buy it for them! And if there's something your friend might want to buy, send them the link! 

We're very close!

Thank you so much for your support, it's really making a huge difference.
We're so pleased to be able to support our local artists through this really challenging and difficult time. There are quite a lot of artists in really difficult financial situations right now, and anything we can do to help really does make a difference.

Let's keep our Artists and Arts in Dorset afloat! 

Speak soon!
