Oh Hiya! As you may know I am in full fund raising mode at the moment getting funds together for my new solo show The Worst of Scottee but more importantly the development of my new company Scottee inc.
just got in the door from a lovely meeting with the Arts Council and I
can now confirm they will be supporting some of my first solo tour and the
initial company development which is really exciting and makes a lot
more stuff possible! However we have some hoops to jump through.
need to raise another few thousand quid before they will release any
funding to us - I'm a new artist and they are taking a leap of faith
financing my fruition so I understand why. A few weeks ago I launched a
crowd funding project and so far you wonderful people have helped me get
about a 1/4 of the way!
It's now time to ramp up the fund raising, pull on the heart stings and prove to you why I need your help / wages.
the next three years I have some really exciting projects planned from
intergenerational drag projects around gay liberation / HIV to the
redevelopment of my local community centre into a knee's up performance
space to a national tour of Hamburger Queen to a international tour of
work made with my Grandad!
Invites have been sent out
to potential trustees, a Scottee inc. bank account is now open,
we're about to draw up a 5 year business plan and we are getting out act
together in becoming a charity. In short - it's all go dear.
For any of this stuff to happen I do need your help. £5,
£50, £500 will make it possible for us to take that first leap into
creating a company that will hopefully live longer that its namesake. Whatever you donate you'll be each given a secret film, a digital print and the chance to win my sketch book.
am asking you to do what you can to spread the word, give what you can
afford and come on a bit of a journey with me and a bunch of amazing
Mum's from my estate, some regional drag queens, a bunch of fatties and
Artistic Director of Scottee inc. (Fancy!)
