Hello friends,

Today, 4 November 2015, the radical granddaddy of the artworld - Gustav Metzger - is calling on arts professionals to make the shift from "aesthetics to ethics" to help address the many environmental crises that we face.

I support this! But, I also believe we need systemic change in arts funding to encourage this transition, allowing for a more politicised artworld to emerge.

That's why I'm setting up the Radical Renewable Art + Activism Fund (RRAAF) and am taking this opportunity to call on you to help! Please support our Kickstarter and become a "RRAAF Founder" today:

Find out more about RRAAF by attending our FREE events in London on 14 November and Glasgow on 17 December (details below).

The Kickstarter deadline is 5 December. Please share / tweet the link, to help us spread the word.

Very best wishes,

Ellie Harrison
