run by artists for artists.
This campaign seeks to encourage patronage and support of the NewARC and the artists using the space. Patrons were invited to make donations towards supporting the costs of the studios and in return were given artwork. A successful cocktail evening was held supported by Primi Piatti and with a performance by rock harp duo ‘Lu Flur’.
Crowd Funding Project
With the launch of the NewARC in April 2012 Assemblage started using Make Art Happen as a fund raising platform. The first fundraiser successfully completed was a crowd funding campaign. Assemblage raised R10,900 to support the activities of the NewARC. In return for pledges contributors were given cool Make Art Happen merchandise including t-shirts, bags, prints and artworks. In the future Assemblage hopes to persue more crowd funding opportunities in the future.
