Freedom Fund for Black Artists in the West Midlands

As part of the Midsummer Festival on Sat 20 June, we are asking for donations to a Freedom Fund for Black Artists in the region. 

The fund will be used to respond to Black Artists’ individual self-identified immediate needs. We’re really grateful to MAIA, an artist-led cultural organisation; a platform for creative practice, critical thinking and social change, who will use their expertise to manage and distribute the funds.

If you are able to support this fund, you can donate directly now, via PayPal.

We are committed to supporting and facilitating long term change with regards to diversity and inclusion in the cultural sector.
