Crowdfunding for the first ever UoB Fine Art Painting students to go to ‘Free Range Art Week!’

our project

We are a group of 28 third year students from the Fine Art Painting course at The University of Brighton! We're raising funds towards the hire fees involved with the Free Range show at the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, for the Art Week this July. We have covered exhibition fees and are now trying to raise money for the board hire, transport hire and other deposits and funds for our show!

our story

We are the first year group in the entire history of our (BA Hons) Fine Art Painting degree to get involved with the Free Range event - so this is an incredibly exciting for us! 

Free Range is a great event to get our work and names out there, especially upon the completion of our degree show and before graduating from The University. It's a great way for us to represent our institution whilst also showing off our own talents and skills in the Fine Art Painting field along with meeting prospective employers.

Where will the money go?

The money will go towards our board hire fee and any transport fees we have to cover. Also, if we raise enough, we'd love to print small zines for our exhibition and information packs so the people who come and view the show can see who made what and hopefully make contact with them too!

The board hire is £1000, which was an expense which we have enthusiastically been fundraising to cover, but would love the opportunity to have your support and donations as well to cover these extra costs. No show in London comes at a low price but it is certainly worth it for us as a course, institution and individual artists about to fledge into the world!

We also need to cover transport hire for the show, which will enable us to smoothly get our work from the University to London. With your help, we will be able to cover this cost and display our work as seamlessly as possible!

Help us succeed!

Any donation is very gratefully welcomed and even if you can't donate right now, please feel free to share our story and this page to help get support towards our show!
