Spacex’s future – an update and how you can help
Since our last communication in September we have been involved in intensive discussions to determine the future direction of the organisation. We are currently working towards a 2015 programme that will hopefully see Spacex move into a new phase of its history. Plans for Spacex so far include using the building as a project space, a gallery, a studio space for residencies, a social setting and a learning space.
The long-term future of Spacex relies on partnerships and we are in on-going discussions with partners – new and old – about how we can work together. We remain committed to working collaboratively to support artistic production and to this end we will be hosting a series of events in the spring to help us engage in dialogue about the future of the organisation.
However, it is important to highlight that plans for the programme are dependent on our efforts to fundraise.
Keep an eye out for our upcoming crowd-funding campaign due to launch in February. This initiative will allow an exclusive chance for you to acquire limited edition artworks by artists who have previously exhibited at Spacex. We have been overwhelmed by the generosity of artists who have donated artworks for this, so a massive thank you to those that have been able to support us in this way.
