London's newest art venue, Peckham Space, is looking to secure funds for a series of free art clubs for young people and has turned to crowdfunding for help. Through the platform WeDidThis, Peckham Space is looking to raise funds to provide free access to creative, artistic and educational activities for young people in Peckham, London.
Peckham Space opened in June 2010 and is part of the Camberwell College of Arts, University of the Arts in London. The organisation's goal is to commission and exhibit art produced by artists in collaboration with the residents and young people of Peckham. Peckham Space is driven to encourage the progression of young people into creative higher education as well as unlimited access to cultural and educational activity in the region.
The organisation needs to raise £2,000 for Art Clubs to be run in December. If successful, the clubs will be able to provide creative & artistic activities, and resources for 100 children in Peckham. So far they have raised £720 with just eight days to find the remainder.
WeDidThis is a UK based crowdfunding platform whose goal is to successfully secure funding for as many arts projects as possible. The founders of the platform have set a goal of 50 projects to be funded for 2011 by bringing together a mass of potential investors and funders to make a contribution to the project of their choice.
