SAVE OUR SEAFAIR ARTISTS

£1,354

supporters

The COVID-19 crisis has cut artists off from their source of income. Events and workshops have been cancelled - your support NOW is crucial.

by SEAFAIR Artists in Bridport, England, United Kingdom

We're still collecting donations

On the 18th May 2020 we'd raised £1,234 with 64 supporters in 34 days. But as every pound matters, we're continuing to collect donations from supporters.

WHY IS YOUR HELP CRUCIAL?

Here's the (not so) funny thing. Socially-engaged artists are just that, social. What's the problem? Well, being social isn't possible right now!

In fact, our artists and practitioners are stuck inside and have been advised to be very anti-social (for good reason of course). Workshops, events and gatherings have all been cancelled or postponed with so many dates still not yet confirmed.

What does this mean? An immediate loss of income with artists unable to pay bills, buy amenities and support themselves and their families. 

Your generous donations will go to the SEAFAIR artists who have been directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to help them in this time of crisis and 'replace' some of the income they have lost.

Any SEAFAIR member who needs it can ask for some money. We will share it out equally to those who apply. This is based on trust of each other. 



WHAT HAVE WE DONE SO FAR?

SEAFAIR offers support for artists by artists. We are new and fresh, just starting to bloom! We began in October 2018 with a one day workshop to bring together socially-engaged practitioners to network, share, take risks, talk and bring about new opportunities. We have now grown to become a strong rural network of 50 South West based artists, musicians, performers, photographers, menders, dancers and all those in many or other camps! Since our first event we have hosted artists' talks, events, workshops, meet-ups, away-days and festivals, all of which have been promoted through a weekly newsletter.



WHO WILL YOUR PLEDGES SUPPORT?

Most SEAFAIR artists are freelancers who rely on regular workshop bookings and paid events. These have all had to stop, so those artists have lost or had their income significantly reduced. Your generous donations will go to these artists who have been directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic to help them in this time of crisis and 'replace' some of the income they have lost. Your money will make a huge difference to those impacted and will be shared equally amongst those that need it right now. Our fundraising target is £3,500. 



HOW CAN YOU HELP?
Support us when we need it most. We need your generosity, empathy and kindness during this challenging time. We appreciate and understand that there is a strain put on everyone right now.

But if you believe in the power of art to:

- Connect people

- Offer memorable encounters

- Support the wellbeing of others

- Enrich communities  

PLEASE PLEDGE!

We have some fantastic rewards on offer, for as low as a £1 donation!

For more information on what SEAFAIR does and how we work with communities take a look at our Instagram & Facebook Page. Thank you.
