Crowdfund Blog: Week 3

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 baked goods!

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 Arts, Ariana!
