A Go Fund Me campaign initiated by Creative Factory to support Artists on Teeside.

Hello, Gordon here from Creative Factory. We are all aware of the current situation and the effects on everybody’s livelihoods, mental health and well being. I hope you are well and saying safe.

This fund is inspired by Luke Barnes who established a mechanism to support Artists in Liverpool affected by Coronavirus and its various impacts. The idea is to provide hardship funds for any artists, cultural workers, practitioners and creative freelancers that cannot work during this time or who have been affected by cancellations or other impacts.

These will be available to artists with a TS postcode. If this fund speaks to you, we want to help. We will distribute small amounts of money to asap to as many people as possible. If you can give, please give generously. If we make more than what we’re fundraising for, we’ll be able to support more artists. If we get lots of generous donations, we’ll go again, for as long as we can. If you are an artist please do not contribute unless you can afford it.
