How are you feeling on a scale of one to seven? (2013) Donna Coleman

I blogged recently about the great Place and Memory project, who were looking for funding to support the development of artists who have experienced mental health difficulties. This award winning project produced a wonderful book and film last year and since then artists Emma Bolland, Tom Rodgers, curator Judit Bodor and writer and publisher Brian Lewis have continued to give time and work with the participants on a voluntary basis. They wanted funding for a second exhibition, and a publication – part art book, part document of the amazing journey, and part an exploration in text and image of the hidden histories and beauties of the city of Leeds.

Unfortunately the ‘crowdfunding’ kickstarter campaign did not reach its target. However they have set up their own donate page and also trimmed the budget so that they are asking for less than a third of the original amount. This will still allow them to print a book but it just means that nothing else will be paid for and everything will be done on a voluntary basis. The participants will still get the same level of support.

“We now need to raise £2500 by April 20th. We have set up a direct donations page on our website (link below) and are asking all our kickstarter backers if they will donate to us direct. You can donate any amount when you’ve clicked on the PayPal button; you’ll find the same list of Rewards below the PayPal button. If you’ve already donated to us direct then thank you so much for your support – we really appreciate it. If you have any questions then please do contact us on placeandmemory2@gmail.com

The Place And Memory team. X”
