Is it a grant application?
Sound more like a Forest Project so I will post it here and see what happens....
As you know, The Forest has been involved with the Zine stall at the Knockengorroch Festival for many seasons, this May I would like to propose a deeper and different involvement.
I would like The Forest/Forest Publications to practically and financially support a "Mobile Publishing Unit" that would produce a daily NewsSheet at the festival. Giving contributor the opportunity to see their work in print instantly, rather than 6 months later. And it would help to compile content for the regular bi-annual publication.
In my vision, there would be a large stall area with a desk and three chairs, two typewriters (which I have already). And a print room in the back of a van, containing a computer and the old Forest photocopier. The money I am asking for would be used to hire a large, Long-wheelbase van, and pay for things like toner/paper.
In the past, due to lack of enthusiasm and funding, the stall has been me and Shaz with a few damp pamphlets (Shaz has consistently lost money on this project), I think Forest support would give this endeavor the opportunity to not only produce some valid and exciting art/publishing but be a good way to reach out with Forest Publications and ideas to people out-with of edinburgh. You have to put something in to get something out.
Thank you for considering this application, and I look forward to your feedback.
