Artist-Run DIY & Collective Memory Matters - Help Preserve ARI REMIX LIVING ARCHIVES
Dear Artist-Run Initiative (ARI) enthusiast, friend and colleague,
Thanks so much for your past and continuing support for collective memory. I am truly grateful for your care, interest and involvement in the ARI Remix Living Archives & Social Memory Project so far- remix.org.au
We at ARI Remix collective are currently running a crowdfunding philanthropic campaign attached here for you to kindly consider, donate to and share here:
We have raised about $ 2,000 towards a short term goal of $2,200 so far which is a tremendous boon to offset all the Web IT ongoing web hosting, updates/fixes costs for remix.org.au in 2019.
Effectively, this campaign is happening now so we can instill added confidence for the community funding assessors and agencies we are applying to for arts investment that this collective memory project is 'actually' becoming more sustainable and self sufficient over the next three years.
So we actually need $ 7,500 in the medium term by 30 June 2020 to help reserve the living archives and the necessary digital infrastructure.
While we haven't secured arts funding recently, we have reapplied for the proposed third and final iteration - 'A Queensland Remix - 1970 to Now ' - an expanded and expanding online resource and Web 2.0 artwork of artist-run collective memories and cultural heritage, artist/ARI profiles, digital copies of artist ARI ephemera and related url links.
Based on feedback from both Arts Queensland and the Australia Council fr example, from their point of view as potential 'arts investors' in us becoming increasingly less reliant on public funds through philanthropic social enterprise, as the project grows we have been advised we need to evidence and achieve actual "significant" philanthropic support.
If you can kindly and graciously help directly with a modest donation towards this crowdfunding campaign, I feel we would all be immensely grateful.
I am writing to a few key past and recent supporters now including yourself, as community-based independent, DIY ARI enthusiasts who deeply understand that independent DIY artist-run culture and it's distinctive social history matters, and in particular that acknowledging artist-run culture in it's many varied and vivid forms, past, present and emerging, helps make a biodiverse and vibrant 'living' arts and culture environment.
Thanking you dear ARI friend and DIY enthusiast I am looking forward to your support.
Collective Memory Matters.
