RRAAF (Radical Renewable Art + Activism Fund) will use a wind turbine to generate renewable energy to fund a â€˜no strings attachedâ€™ grant scheme for art-activist projects.
My name is Ellie Harrison and Iâ€™m an artist based in Glasgow (UK). Iâ€™m fundraising for â€œphase 1â€ of an ambitious new project called the Radical Renewable Art + Activism Fund (RRAAF), which, once set up, will be a new and autonomous alternative funding scheme for art-activist projects in the UK.
By supporting this Kickstarter, you will become a RRAAF Founder â€“ helping to raise awareness for the project and fund the initial scoping work being carried out by Georgy Davis fromCommunity Energy Scotland. This will be completed ready to be presented at our Launch Event at CCA Glasgow on 17 December 2015 (6:30pm), where we will outline plans for how we can make RRAAF a reality in the comingâ€¦
