SPACE Team Run Hackney for Graduate Artists!
Seven SPACE staff will be running on 10th May in Run Hackney, the half marathon, to raise £3500 towards supporting recently graduated artists at a crucial time in the development of their practice.
In a city that’s increasingly unsustainable for artists, particularly graduates with student loans and more to deal with, SPACE wants to provide more free, 1 year, bursary studios. This will help to ensure that talent not money is the route to success as an artist, and support greater diversity in the visual arts.
SPACE Patrons & Friends Bursary recipient Jala Wahid sums it up:
"without this generous bursary opportunity my practice would be unsustainable ... with it I can afford to be more experimental and develop my practice"
However small, any support you can give is enormously welcome. Just go to the SPACE Run Hackney Team's safe and secure Just Giving page here to donate.
