Today I am writing this post as I am looking for more sponsors to help get to the full amount needed to print the booklet.
Would you wish to add your name and logo to our sponsors, promoting the name of your company in the booklet I will print, which will be on sale in Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery or in other venues, local or national? I have created a draft of the booklet so that you can see how I intend to display sponsors names and logos if you were to be interested in adding your business to our sponsors.
Our first sponsors range from local businesses, people who have followed the progress of the window to total strangers that have taken an interest in the project. I hope that with the success of it we can to reach a larger audience and attract all sorts of visitors to Shrewsbury Museum & Art Gallery for many years, by having a
professional editing and quality printing of this booklet.
Please, find below, all details first published on the Crowdfunder website.
Arts Council England has awarded Nathalie with a grant that will fund the making of a stained glass window for the Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery. As part of her commitment to the Arts Council, she must raise some of her own income through workshops and also find more sponsors to fund other aspects of the project, such as the printing of a journal following the project.
The journal is a celebration of women in traditionally male-dominated professions. It will tell the story of the two different practices (stained glass window making and filmmaking) by two modern females for the ‘Marga & Collections’ stained glass project. ‘Marga’, short for Margaret Agnes Rope (1882-1953) was a British stained glass artist in the Arts and Crafts movement tradition in the early 20th century. ‘Collections’, a reference to the collective memories of Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery and Darwin’s fossils and collections. It is a 21st-century approach to what the Arts and Crafts movement started – a consciousness of the environment as our society develops, keeping in mind the traces we leave behind as memories and collections for future generations.
