Securing public funding seems tough, most seem to require that we survive on our own for a period of time, so now we are asking for donations at the gallery. Currently it goes to the Print Stravaganza account with a line saying that it is for the Third Floor Gallery. Don't worry, everything will go where it has to be.
You can find a donate button at our about page:
The main worry right now is to pay the £1400 of a quarters rent. We have part of this money, but by far not the whole amount, so any help is more than welcome. We also are preparing a gift at the end of our first year for all those who donated £200 or more, so that you have a memento of your good deeds.
