Through their website at furtherfield.org, the Netbehaviour mailing list and gallery space in London our friends at Furtherfield have supported a thriving community of artists, techies and activists since 1997. Please support their work by making a donation and by helping spread the word about this appeal.
Furtherfield needs to raise £10,000 by the end of April 2013
Furtherfield – A living, breathing, thriving network for art, technology and
social change since 1997
Then please come to the gallery and allow us to kiss you on both cheeks (or at least shake your hand) at the Furtherfield Donor’s Gratitude and Appreciation Party.
For 16 years we have worked in solidarity with artists, techies, activists, adventurous art audiences to create and share a culture that means more to more people.
Last year 160,000 people visited Furtherfield’s online platforms from around the world. At our new gallery in the heart of Finsbury Park , North London, we have connected with over 5000 more people from the local area, visitors from across London, the UK and internationally.
We have never asked you for money before. The talent and generosity of contributors and participants and the support of Arts Council England and Haringey Council have kept the engine running till now. But if we are to go on with this work we have to ask for your help.
With your donation Furtherfield’s programme of three Summer exhibitions will feature a festival of glitch art, renowned artists of culture hacking such as Cornelia Solfrank, followed by legendary network MCs Mark Amerika and Shu Lea Cheang. See our past exhibitions .
With your donation our gallery Clear Spots programme will continue to act as a showcase space for artists, techies and activists to shape the world in a way that enables everyone to get involved.
With your donation Furtherfield will continue to develop community technology workshops to get as many people as we can involved in building their own layer of digital culture in and around Finsbury Park, with games, tech recycling, making music, film, robots and community blogs.
All donors of more than £50 will be listed for public thanks on the gallery walls at Furtherfield for 2013/14.
You have our heartfelt thanks. We’ll let you know how we get on and that invitation will be winging its way to you shortly.
