Who We Are
The fourth year Contemporary and Contextualised Art Practice and Visual Communication and Design classes of Inverness College UHI need your support! We are raising funds to help pay for our very last, BA Honours Degree show which this year is being held in Inverness Museum and Art Gallery. Every little donation helps, and anything we don't spend (plus 10% of anything raised) will be going to a local good cause (see below).
What the Money is For
The money raised is primarily for the creation and printing of a high quality artists catalogue to accompany the show, along with advertising costs. Any left over money once those have been allocated for will go to the Highland One Stop Shop. Help us to create the best possible catalogue to support a range of talented artists, designers and illustrators as we finish our education, AND support a worthwhile charity in the process!
Charity Support : About the Highland One Stop Shop
Part of our fundraising money will go directly to a local charity, The Highland One Stop Shop. The One Stop Shop is a service which provides support for autistic adults aged 16 and over living in the Highland. The service is provided by Autism Initiatives and has a base in Inverness where autistic individuals can go to socialise in a safe environment with others who share similar experiences.
The service offers free social groups, drop-ins and opportunity for 1-1 appointments with staff members to discuss a range of topics, including financial issues, benefits, relationships, education, work, housing and more.
Despite being a life saving service for many autistic people and their families, the service has had funding cut and is again struggling to stay open. Without funding they will close after June 2019 leaving many autistic individuals and their families without this much needed support.
As mentioned, we will be allocating a share of 10% of all funds raised through this project to the One Stop Shop, along with any excess funds left over not used to fund the show.
Many thanks for taking the time for considering our project, and we look forward to seeing you at the exhibition in May!
