Do you support the arts? I’m guessing you do, or you probably wouldn’t be sharing your creativity here 🙂
Why not consider supporting The Art House? It’s not just a local place; there are plenty of online goings on – creative courses and the like.
In fact, if it wasn’t for me doing the UnEarth your Creative Nature FREE online course back in 2012, I wouldn’t be here now (here on WordPress that is). I would never have taken the plunge and performed (the ‘adventure’ part of the course); I might never have met Grae that first night; I wouldn’t be performing regularly and organising music events, and I wouldn’t have been given the opportunity to be a sound engineer (incorporating my love of music and technology – heaven!) It has changed my life!
If you need a boost, get involved – you won’t regret it and it might be life-changing. That’s not an exaggeration… so many people all over the planet have changed their lives for the better by being a part of such a wonderful organisation.
As we put out a call for Patrons earlier in the year, being very transparent with our finances, I thought it was time for an update on how that’s going.
The Art House will cost an estimated £188000 this year to run, in total.
Around £97,000 of that is fixed costs we need to have a building, services, basic staffing, licences and all the other things which are required to open the doors to the public.
The remaining costs are what it costs to run the cafe side of things, which also happens to be where most of the income comes from.
So, we couldn’t cover that £97,000 with ticket sales and donations alone, and have to run a cafe to generate the money needed to be here.
Also, having a cafe means more people come in – honestly it just makes sense to be a cafe rather than just…
