Womxn Artists Relief Fund

Womxn Artists Relief Fund

Personal message

Due the current COVID-19 pandemic and its devastating consequences on the art industry, artists and organisations are suffering the loss of income from the cancellation of scheduled exhibitions and other fundraising events. The Womxn Artists Relief Fund is an initiative to provide financial relief to womxn artists financially challenged due to the global pandemic.

Established in 2016 by Ugandan born artist Benon Lutaaya (1985-2019), THE PROJECT SPACE (TPS) is a non-profit cultural laboratory dedicated to the advancement of contemporary African art, and a platform centred on expanding spaces and opportunities- with a special focus on Womxn. The Space embodies values of patronage as a context and framework for advancing creativity, innovation, collaboration, resource-sharing, cultural production, entrepreneurship and self-sustainability among contemporary African artists.

Reaching our target of R100 000 will mean a minimum of 20 womxn artists and the organisation will receive financial relief from the funds raised.

The impact is greatly determined by your support and how much money is ultimately raised. While every bit counts, the more we can raise, the greater the impact of our initiative.

50% of the funds will aid 20 artists each receiving a minimum of R2 500 and the other 50% will aid the organisation operational and project costs.
