The generosity of our community over the last two years has been absolutely staggering. Your contributions directly funded the second round of artists in the 2021 Open Call, raising £12,500 for an additional 10 artists to receive funding, guidance, and a stage to perform on. Some of these artists have now gone on to do incredible things like winning the Edinburgh Comedy Award Panel Prize for Best in Class in 2022 or going on national tours. Your generosity helped those brilliant things happen.
As times get tougher for everyone, we are more aware than ever of the meaning and significance of every donation we receive.
And we are, unfortunately more in need of our community than before. Every penny will be directed towards sustaining a space in which audiences feel at home and artists are able to come to grow. As we move into 2023 and the practical barriers to amazing art become even more solidified, we will continue to use your donations to break down these barriers by continuing to develop our access programme and investing in the next stages of our online platforms, Unity Online and ProPortal.
With your help we have also been able to donate up to 3000 tickets a year via our Community Tickets Project to community groups and charities. We’ve also been able to invest over £78,000 directly into supporting Liverpool-based artists via the Open Call programme. And now provide regular support via workshops, events and resources to over 1000 artists with our FREE Creative’Pool membership. We are so proud of what we have been able to achieve with your help.
From the Unity team and all the artists we work with, thank you in advance as your decision to support us in this way means so much and goes so far in helping us to achieve our goals and visions of the future.
