A Summary of our project:
Hello! As final year students we are preparing for our final degree show in June 2019! This show is a great opportunity for us to use everything we have learnt over the past three years and put on an impressive exhibition showcasing and advertising our hard work and skills. We are looking to raise £800 in total to be able to fund this exhibition!

WHO ARE WE?
We are a small but strong group of 13 passionate, creative final year sculpture students from The University of Brighton. We make art around a broad range subjects, materials and approaches, which highlights how diverse sculpture can be. From artworks around the themes of gender and identity, psychological boundaries, time and space, as well as participatory art questioning choice and free will - we have it all!
why is it important to us?
This is the final segment of our year and more importantly degree! We have had such an amazing time over the three years and so together, we want to make this the best, highest standard exhibition that we possibly can.
Our degree exhibition could play an important role in all our futures, as the exhibition is open to the public, and it is known that gallerists, artists and other industry professionals attends this event. This means there could be potential future opportunities created through this event!
WHAT WILL WE USE The money for?
- We will use around £550 of the money to produce a sculpture catalogue. This will include a section on each student and our practices, including visual imagery and artist statements that will allow the visitors to fully understand our works within the show. The visitors are also encouraged to take a catalogue home for free, and so we aim to print at least 200 catalogues.
- We aim to raise around £100 of the money to treat our lovely hardworking first and second year sculpture students to lunch everyday through the exhibition build. They will be helping us to get the exhibition space up to scratch, from filling holes, or sanding the walls and floor to painting the exhibition space. Furthermore each 1st and 2nd year student is assigned to a specific third year to help that student build their actual final artwork. They are very important part and integral to building the exhibition, and we would not be able to do it without them, so we have to treat them well!
- If we reach our full target of £800, the remaining raised will be split up equally to go towards helping us pay for our art materials for the final show. It would help to keep our costs a bit lower, as buying certain materials for an exhibition piece can sometimes be unaffordable.
We have some fab rewards to thank everyone who donates, whatever the amount you might give. Check them out on the side!
Help us succeed!
By contributing to this project, no matter how small the donation, you would be supporting us as young artists, by facilitating us to organise and create the best exhibition possible! This will celebrate the time and patience we've put into developing our artistic practice this far, and be a great starting point to for our future endeavours.
If you are unable to help us financially, we would really appreciate it if you could share our project with anyone you think would be interested. We are very aware that the further we can spread this message the more money we will be able to raise!
We would also love for everybody to come along and show your support by visiting our exhibition at Grand Parade from the 1st June - 8th June.
