Due to the global pandemic, we had to cancel our 5th edition planned for 2020, and we lost most of our funding. Things are still difficult and we need support more than ever, so that we can present Art Night in 2021 and for years to come.
Enable Art Night to present work in cities, towns and villages
In summer 2021, we want to hold Art Night in various locations across the UK, paying particular attention to smaller towns, cities and villages, including Cambridge, Warwick, Skye and Abergavenny. This pilot year will allow us to test out what’s possible, and continue to work in this way in the future.
Support artists and freelance creatives at a crucial time
In the UK, more than half of arts and culture workers are self-employed. Every year before Covid-19, Art Night has offered paid work to 300 freelancers - artists, performers, creative practitioners, curators, producers, invigilators and more. Supporting Art Night benefits a whole ecosystem of creative workers.
Receive amazing rewards made by artists
Support the Art Happens crowdfunding campaign to receive a wide range of rewards, made with and by Art Night artists past and present from Christine Sun Kim ceramic cups, beautiful editions for your wall or to wear by OOMK, Mark Leckey and Emma Talbot, to a Guerrilla Girls tote bag and an Art Night tea towel.
Make something special happen
Your support will make a difference to 10 incredible artists commissions, including the Guerrilla Girls’ largest UK public project in the UK to date - The Male Graze - which will explore bad male behaviour in art history.
