The past week has also been a busy one at Impact Arts in
regards to our crowdfunding campaign – and we certainly do not predict slowing
down any time soon! We had a press call to announce Turner Prize nominated
artist David Shrigley as the Patron of The Young Gallery. Once more, we are
incredibly excited to have David join us in our efforts to bring a fun and
inspiring arts education to the children of the East End.
We also had a couple of staff fundraisers, including a no
holds barred Onesie-palooza, some incredibly fetching Halloween monsters
(including an impressive zombie walk) and a Cakeathon of dangerously delicious
Here at Impact Arts we are all about bringing arts into the
community to help change lives – and we like to have lots of fun (and cake)
while we do it!
In regards to spreading the message about our crowdfunding,
we are pleased to announce that people can now lend their social support and
online influence by joining our Thunderclap campaign. Thunderclap is a platform
through which a message can be promoted through social media utilising crowdsourcing.
Instead of asking people to pledge their support financially, the service lets
individuals “donate” the use of their social media channels in order to blast
one message from multiple sources at the same time, hopefully creating a ripple
effect of awareness. Our Thunderclap page for The Young Gallery crowdfund can
be found here.
Finally, we are joined by Project Scotland volunteer Ariana
for the next three months. Ariana will be helping out with social media and is
currently getting involved in the crowdfund campaign. In her own words, she is excited to be a part of such a driven and
dynamic team, working on a project she truly believes in. Welcome to Impact
