Our New Page on the Local Giving Website

We have been offered a fantastic opportunity!  Northamptonshire Community Foundation has invited Beanfield Artists to to be a part of Localgiving.com, a new website allowing charities and community groups to receive donations online for a three month trial period.
Working with UK Community Foundations, Localgiving.com was started to help communities engage with supporters online, letting them know about their volunteer and funding needs as well as the great work they are doing in the face of government cuts and increased need in the community.

We have a wealth of wonderful ideas and a proven track record delivering innovative, engaging projects. As we are a not for profit arts organisation which raises funds on a project by project basis we are keen to see if this new initiative can help us make our ideas a reality. We have two projects on our pages that we hope to find funding for.

The Art Of Growing

Beanfield Artists propose to become Artists in Residence at The Green Patch allotments in Kettering for 2 weeks in August 2012 and volunteers at Green Patch are keen to stage the project there. Art works will be made in a variety of ways, including the use of recycled and upcycled materials and the use of natural materials such as wood and stone. The project will identify and explore themes inspired by the allotments themselves.

Ticket Exchange Banners

During 2011 the artists staged The Ticket Exchange on trains in Derbyshire, inviting people to send a comment by postcard, about their journey. The artists wish to produce a creative response to the postcards with textiles, print, stitch and digital imagery in the first instance, to the postcards received. These will become the textile masters for a series of permanent artworks to be sited on Stations in Derbyshire and shared with the community. It is hoped that the artworks will encourage travellers and the local community to get involved with the Adopt A Station initiative.

If you would like to help us make a difference please follow the link below to make a donation any amount, large or small will be greatly appreciated.
