Localgiving: Grow your Tenner Campaign
BPW is participating in Localgiving’s Grow Your Tenner campaign, launching on 18th October
Any donation of £10.00 through local giving on the 18th October will automatically be entered into a prize draw to win £95.00 of vouchers to be used on any course in our Winter Events programme.
The funds raised will go towards digital equipment to bring more and varied printmaking content to our audiences
The campaign will match one-time donations pound-for-pound up to £10, and monthly donations up to £10 per month for 3 months
BPW was established in 1977 to welcome artists interested in the practice and promotion of the art of printmaking. As a membership-focused atelier, BPW provides opportunities for residencies, exhibitions, skills and professional development, supporting the income, wellbeing and livelihood of its artists and the communities they work with.
The funds raised will go towards digital equipment to bring more and varied printmaking content to our audiences, as well as help fund the archive section of our website. Our archive includes a collection of over 1,000 prints dating back to the 70s, providing an extensive account of printmaking in Northern Ireland. It is hoped that an online library will offer an important resource tool for students and artists, as well as improving our international visibility, and further embed printmaking as a fine and contemporary art form.
The campaign launches at 10am on the 18th October and will end either on the 17th November at 5pm or when all the funds have run out – whichever comes first! During the campaign, one-time donations will be matched pound-for-pound up to £10 and monthly donations up to £10 per month for three months. Your donation of £10 or more will be entered into a draw with the chance to win £95 to be used against our winter course programme.
