I'm in London to launch a huge new project - the Radical Renewable Art + Activism Fund (RRAAF) - at Beaconsfield in Vauxhall tonight from 7pm.
Once set up, RRAAF aims to be a new and autonomous alternative funding scheme for art-activist projects in the UK.
Today we're launching a Kickstarter to fund RRAAF "phase 1" - the initial scoping work with Community Energy Scotland, which will be presented at CCA Glasgow on 17 December from 6pm.
By pledging £5 or more, you can become a "RRAAF Founder"- get all sorts of weird and wonderful goodies and, if you like, become actively involved in shaping and developing the project in the future.
Please read on for details. I really hope you like the idea and want to help make it happen!
Very best wishes,
Public funding for the arts is being cut left, right and centre.
