In just under a week we have already achieved over 20% of target. We’re delighted with the figure raised to date and are overwhelmed by the outpouring of support for the Crowdfunder on social media (it’s our most-successful tweet of all time!) but we still need YOUR help to reach our target.
The careers, mental health, welfare and opportunities open to Liverpool artists will all benefit from a donation, which will also ensure the survival of Liverpool’s famous cultural scene.
Below we’ve rounded up just some of the responses to the Crowdfunder that reinforce the vitality of this campaign and getting money and opportunity back into the pockets of creatives across the city.

Liverpool's @unitytheatre are running a Crowdfunder in support of their artistic community. Artists have been amongst the hardest hit by successive lockdowns as they often aren't eligible for government support schemes. Please help them if you can. https://t.co/HcJfEcirRC

Just backed this great crowdfunder from @unitytheatre. Our Cultural sector is massively important in Liverpool and our artists and performers need more support right now. If you can please support too 👇 https://t.co/fN6iX6c9Lw

Without artists and freelancers there would BE no theatre. Hats off to @unitytheatre for launching this and to anyone who can offer some financial assistance at this difficult time https://t.co/SZ9NqrZFaz

Unity Theatre have been amazing thought COVID. They've set up work shops, mentorships, given space, time, organised programmes of learning, done podcasts, put money into artists pockets, listened to the community to revaluate purpose and now they're doing this. They're amazing. https://t.co/uKKUzApwxX
