Today our friends at Spacex launch an online crowdfunding campaign to help secure their future vision for access to contemporary arts in Exeter.
Reaching their fundraising goal of £10,000 will allow Spacex to embark on an exciting series of projects and artist residencies, including ones in partnership with Exeter Phoenix.
Here’s what Spacex have to say about the campaign…
This Kickstarter is supported by a large number of generous artists who want to see Spacex move into a new phase of it’s history. The artists have donated work so that if you pledge a donation, you can obtain art in return. A variety of items from the Spacex archive are also available to choose from, as ‘rewards’, for donating.
As you may know Spacex is at a pivotal, and exciting, point in its forty-year history. In response to funding reductions we have adapted the organisation to enable us to continue with a project-based programme. In place of being a gallery with a rolling programme of exhibitions, Spacex now produces projects in collaboration with a wide range of partners. We are continuing to bring artists and audiences together and will still be producing exhibitions in a range of venues as part of this. We have secured grant funding from ACE towards this year’s programme but this does not cover all costs. We need to find new sources of income, and support from the public, to continue this work.
