TAKING US FROM 2020 INTO 2021
Giving Tuesday is coming up and we are asking you to help TAP move into and expand in 2021.
2020 brought on a shift in the way we engage our audience and serve our artistic community.
We shared, shared , shared and shared the work of amazing local artists through social media.
Found new ways to help artists learn through mini art demos online and adapted a new cohort structure to return to weekly in-person Figure Drawing sessions.
Created safe ways to view our exhibitions. Starting with virtual exhibitions and expanding to exhibition tours with the artist for small groups in our gallery.
Made it easier to access studio spaces to work. With 2 new short term residencies, we currently have a full house.
We are working with the community to build up the community by making it easier for Londoners to find local creatives.
We have been successful in providing opportunities for artists, life models and instructors to earn revenue again.
WHAT DOES 2021 LOOK LIKE FOR TAP?
Well... a lot of change and in many ways.
We are making room! Our basement and theatre spaces are going through construction, and along with it we are gaining new creation and learning opportunities. (New classrooms and coworking studio spaces)
This year, we've done as much as we could with our limited resources. To achieve our goals in 2021 we need your support to help us gain the stability and resources to give artists access to studio space, learning experiences, networking events, exhibition space and paid presentation opportunities.
WHAT YOUR DONATION DOES
Your contribution will support our vision for a creative hub where art, performance and experimentation are the spark for a diverse and connected community. No commitment is too small so you have the option to choose a one-time and monthly contribution amount that fits your budget to help us sustain our work to support creatives in our community. We have also highlighted a few different initiatives that we are excited about on the right.
