With your support, 31 Local and regional artists aim to open an art gallery in Waterdale Doncaster. Your donation will enable us to Show the works of these artists in a professional environment with an opening exhibition which will showcase the art inspired by the coronavirus pandemic lockdown. Having an art gallery will help boost the Waterdale area, provide art students a pathway to future careers, leverage the skills of the arts community collectively and boost tourism. The gallery will have framing and printing facilities for the use of the artists and the general public. We will produce 3 art collections per year which will go on tour in the UK. Long term Vision for the project The gallery space will also provide a community hub where people will learn about art appreciation as a means to a sustainable economy.

The project will give 31 artists gallery representation (this is very hard to come by) It will teach valuable business skills to artists. It will attract prestigious businesses to open in the area.

Artists will be able to sell more work. Children and families will be able to come on days out. Older people will have a welcome and safe and interesting place to go.
Steps to get it done:
Long term Vision for the project We aim to open 5 art galleries in Doncaster over a 10 year period. This will enable us to create the Doncaster Art walk/Art trail which you find in other towns. What this means is that visitors would visit the town for the art walk at any time of the year, visitors would start from the new museum and then proceed visit the other galleries and art spaces in the town. This I believe could become a major tourist attraction for our town. We just need your help to renovate the unit. This will also help the art students in the colleges in the area of arts students as it will provide a pathway for their future career and also an outlet for their works. It will also provide internships for them to learn the business side of the art industry. This will provide Doncaster residents somewhere interesting to go to in the town and would be a huge educational resource for schools and young people. It will inspire everyone.

Dear art lovers, I have some great news, our proposed D31 art gallery which will be in the Civic quarters of Doncaster has received an amazing pledge of £2500 which takes us really very close to our funding target. We now only need £345 to reach this target. Could you please support us to raise this small amount? Just imagine how incredible it will be when we open the gallery right in the heart of Doncaster. It is such an amazing project which will exhibit some stunning art works and educate the public. Help us make this happen as it will be your gallery. Every little helps. We count on you.
