Art House Foundation's WeDidThis campaign closed on 20th September 2011, having reached its funding goal of £1000 with 12 donations.
Art House Foundation’s very exciting news this summer is that we’re moving to Brunswick Wharf, Laburnum St E2 where Tannery Arts and the Drawing Room have been until now.
This is a BIG move for us!
As a charitable organisation we will be managing 12 studios and running our programme in the gallery space. We also have new trustees joining us for this next stage in our development. So a warm welcome to Soraya, Mark and Sacha.
Our first show in Laburnum St will be new work by Graham Gussin alongside a piece of work by Alistair McClymont, our artist in residence, and a new text by our writer in residence Tom Morton.
We have been running unfunded so far so as we have no cash reserves we are in need of funds to help with the move and our first rent payment. We thought we’d try crowd funding for some of this to allow our well wishers the opportunity to help us out and donate to us in whatever way they can and to welcome everyone to be a part of this exciting moment.
If you are feeling especially willing and able and are in the position to match fund our target please feel free to get in touch.
Thank you to you all for taking the time to watch the video and read through this and an enormous thank you in advance to those of you who donate. Looking forward to seeing you all soon.
Caroline (Director) and Keith (Chair of Trustees)
All donors to this project will be entitled to a free guided tour of the new site!
Art House Foundation is a small artist led commissioning charity.
Founded in 2008 by Caroline Rolf and Keith Wilson, AHF embodies a dialogue between practice at different stages of a career. Our particular interests loosely explore object, exhibition making and text. We support emerging and established artists through an in depth engagement with their practice to develop and exhibit new work and through the provision of affordable studio space. We also offer local educational establishments proximity to all professional practice associated with the commissioning process.
We encourage each commission to evolve in its own way and focus on the work which then informs how it will best engage with its audience. AHF’s programme includes a series of one off temporary projects alongside longer term works and residencies and continuing relationships with some artists.
This project offered its funders the following rewards:-
Just the great feeling of being an arts funder!
