What Can Your Donation Do?
Your donations are absolutely crucial to the successful running of Lacuna Festivals. Without them we would have no publicity materials, no hardware to hang the shows, no online platforms, no transport for the artworks...the list is endless. We wanted to clearly show where the money that you donates goes and what it is used for. To help paint a clear picture of what we actually need money for, we have put together a list of our constant expenses - the ones that we have year in, year out no matter what we do! From this you can see how quickly costs add up. For, of course, we don't just need enough mountboard for one exhibition if we have three exhibition spaces and it takes many tanks of fuel to transport the artworks to and from the exhibition spaces and post office.
If every artist that took part in Clash 2022 had donated just €3 we would have beaten our target and therefore the majority of the festival expenses would have been paid for. The unfortunate reality is that through our 2022 GoFundMe page, we only raised 60% of our €1000 goal and as such Simon and I had to struggle to foot the rest of the bill. Obviously it is unsustainable to spend hundreds of Euros AND give hundreds of hours time to run an Arts Festival year after year. And that is why this year we are being very upfront about the financial implications of running this event and are asking for your help to ensure that we can keep doing it!
So please, give what you can. Even if you think that what you can afford is an insignificant amount, the impact of your donation will not be insignificant for the future of Lacuna Festivals.
