The Alchemy Experiment opened in October 2020 with the aim of creating an inclusive art space. Since opening, the space has hosted two open calls (Love in the Time of Covid, Love & Chaos) with entrants and art from all over the world.
Since the first exhibition last year we have held workshops, spoken word events, solo and group art shows, evening events supporting local businesses, live music and pop-up shops for artists and makers to show and sell their pieces. We launched the Alchemy Creative Fund with the
We are focused on being an inclusive art space so therefore operate booking on a felixble basis. Artists, after applying or being invited, can choose to forward pay a flat rate as rent, or work on a commission basis in order to make the space accessible to artists or all ages, backgrounds and financial means.
WHAT IS THE ALCHEMY CREATIVE FUND?
The Alchemy Creative Fund (A.C.F) is an ongoing open fund, supported by donations and shows, to continuously provide a platform for emerging and underrepresented artists. 100% of the fund will go to supporting the artists and their work.
The Alchemy Experiment aims to be an inclusive space supporting all forms of art. We hope to make funding available for emerging and underrepresented artists and groups, to facilitate use of the space and cover artistic costs. The fund will support individual needs for materials, equipment or producing work and can also be available for projects, shows and group events.
Applications are open to all Scottish based artists, creative agencies, and organisations. However the purpose of the fund is to promote inclusivity and diversity, therefore we will prioritise awarding funds to disadvantaged and underrepresented groups.
Funding will be raised throughout the year and applications will open following the end of the 'Love & Chaos' exhibit this autumn.
Application forms will be released on our website at this time.
The support we can provide will depend on how much is raised over the next few months. Following which, funding will be raised continuously throughout the year and applications will remain open.
We will provide receipts to ensure 100% transparency throughout our fundraising campaign.
You can donate via the Crowd Funder UK page here. We will continue to add rewards to the page throughout the campaign.
