This year the craft of fan making was included in the Radcliffe Red List of Endangered Crafts as 'at serious risk of no longer being practised'. We need your help to raise £14,000 to launch a pioneering project which aims to put fan making back on the map. 

Street Fans unites an international cast of street artists including RUN, C215, Nathan Bowen, Sr.X, Himbad & Otto Schade with master fan maker, Sylvain Le Guen to design and create one-of-a-kind fans which the Museum wants to exhibit later this year. Funds raised will support the manufacture by hand of 60 fans and enable the Museum to stage several project-linked events including a 'paint jam' and fan making workshop at Greenwich Market, a fan design competition for students at Lewisham Southwark College, and a similar event involving street artists and fan making tutors at the Heritage Gallery, Greenwich University.
