As the southerly winds blow, whipping up a wild sea in front of my new studio on the NW coast, I am conscious of the challenging year it’s been planning and fund raising for my ambitious #LitterCUBE 2019 work.
So, it’s with great pleasure and relief, that I can announce I have raised over £18,000 worth of support, made up of both cash donations and pledges of equipment loans, peoples time, provision of space, accommodation e.t.c . Fantastically this represents over a third of the whole project costs.
Thank You to everyone and many more anonymous individuals and organisations who have invested in the project. Please do contact me with your postal address to receive a Beach Litter Guide . I will also be posting out 20 surprise prints!
These donations have enabled me to demonstrate the support I have in an application to Creative Scotland for the remaining funding support I need to construct the #LitterCUBES in Edinburgh, Lerwick, Scalloway, Dunbar, Ullapool, Eyemouth and Angus next year. Fingers crossed for a positive decision at the end of January. I am continuing to look for further support to cover the costs of this ambitious project: Any suggestions most welcome.
I will be holding an information event at Dunbar Harbour on Tuesday 15th January at McArthur’s store meeting room 5-7pm, everyone is welcome. Come along to find out more and here about opportunities to get involved.
My Just Giving page remains open until New Year’s Eve and donations via the blog are greatly received anytime.
