we can make a case based on past record ( busy exhibition schedule) +
the plans to offer longer time for artist and be able to support them more in terms of materials and equipment so that they can take more challenging work in the gallery ?
Sorry, I meant "pass it round" as in to show it to you guys as it is likely you guys may have a better idea of what a successful proposal might look like.
here is the submission guidlines:
Application is by post only, and must include the following:
* Brief synopsis of the project
300 words maximum on one A4 sheet.
* Budget on one A4 sheet stating:
a. Total cost of the project
b. Amount requested
c. Details of other funding applications made.
d. Name and address of recipient of grant
* Visual material
a) Small selection of images on paper (not exceeding 20 x30cm). These can be photos or still images from video work, but must be of good quality and clearly labelled, with date, medium, dimensions and orientation. 6-8 maximum. Material submitted on DVD will only be accepted from artists working with film/video.
b) Small selection of other visual material eg. catalogues, press cuttings, etc which may help the Trustees when considering the application
* Brief CV where relevant
* Stamped addressed envelope
for the return of any material
Whilst the Elephant Trust will take every care, it can accept no responsibility for its safe return.
So in terms of the application I was thinking that we could pitch it TotalKunst as an ongoing initiative and apply for funding for a year-
that might include--
artist budgets (12x£100) £1200
A0 Project (£2 x5x 12 months) £120
Suitcase Series (postage £100) £100
Gallery renovation- (Paint £20x12) £240
(Floor Varnish ??) ??
(Lighting ??) ??
That would probably start taking us to the £2000 mark.
Thoughts? What would we submit as visual material?
