The Artists’ Bond scheme (Artnotes AM350) is open to new members for the next three months, allowing those outside its founding members from the Artists’ Lottery Syndicate to join and share in its profits over their lifetimes. Organised by Ellie Harrison (Profile AM346), members commit £30 and share out any profits made from the group’s collective purchase of National Savings & Investments Premium Bonds. In keeping with the Artists’ Lottery Syndicate, The Artists’ Bond is described as ‘a speculative new scheme for acquiring funds for artists’ that aims to ‘utilise the element of luck, which plays such a central role in an artist’s career’.
