Artist and musician Jean Smith has launched a 30-day IndieGogo campaign to support purchasing property to run a Free Artist Residency, to be bequeathed to a cultural activist group for use in perpetuity.
“I intend to purchase and run an existing property (an inn, large house or guesthouse) where artists (including musicians, writers and filmmakers) will reside while working on projects that intend to create progressive social change.
Accommodation for between 5 – 7 guest residents…
Presentation area for workshops and collaboration”
I’m using my $100 USD paintings as perks – all funds raised go to purchasing property (a multi-building facility on a spectacular Canadian island) for the Free Artist Residency.
