The success story carries on!

Let people see what people can do together!  
"GROWTH IS NOT BY MERE CHANCE; IT IS THE RESULT OF FORCES WORKING TOGETHER." (J.C.Penney)

The first Kickstarter campaign for The Travelling Art Gallery has come successfully to an end which means the first goal has been reached. The 2nd phase has been uploaded after we all felt that the audience who saw our project endorsed it. The money funded will be entirely used to cover expenses which is the reason for the CROWDFUNDING! 

Please assist, each small amount can make a big difference and some larger pledges don't harm. We are a small group of like-minded people, living in South Africa and working in the art scene. 

Thank you to all who supported already in the first phase - please feel free to share this 2nd phase with your network, your friends, your families all around the world. The Travelling Art Gallery is an artists’ initiative that will take South African art to three German cities in June and July 2018. 

We funded in the first phase R266,000 which equals Euro 18.500 and now we are determined to fund another portion of the costs. We are in touch with some companies for sponsorship but everybody is busy and not really quick in decisions and we don't have the time to wait. 

Be part of something which will forever show what people can do together! “The aim of The Travelling Art Gallery is to take South African art to the world, and to invite the world back to South Africa,” explains Barbara, one of the organisers and people with the vision for the project. "Art adds so much value to our society and helps to bring so many positive elements together.”
The Travelling Art Gallery will take between 70 to 80 art works to Germany in June and July 2018, setting up Pop-Up exhibitions in hip locations in cities such as Hildesheim, Hamburg and Mannheim/Ludwigshafen. 

The first host city of The Travelling Art Gallery will be Hildesheim (close to Hannover) and the 14th of June will see the opening evening! 
Visit www.thetravellingartgallery.com for latest updates and news.

Each city's exhibition will last for between eight and 10 days only, and will be supported by a beautiful opening night and a nationwide PR campaign to pull in as large an audience as possible. 
Neuschwansteiner Edelmäzen and Capreo (wines from South Africa) haven recently confirmed their partnership with The Travelling Art Gallery and will support the project.

The project will exhibit some established South African artists as well as young emerging artists in cool hip locations. We take art out of the gallery into a space in which people experience art without any distraction; we want to make art accessible to people outside of the traditional setting. The Travelling Art Gallery wants to be a creative space, a platform that shows artists on an international level, a platform that promotes artists in a different environment. Artists which would not be seen internationally and art that is fresh, new, different and strong. 

“As a German who has lived in Cape Town for nearly 10 years now, I am passionate about sharing the amazing art created in South Africa with Germany. I believe this is a project that can have so many wonderful spin-offs for the local art and tourism sector, as Europeans who visit the exhibitions will be inspired to visit South Africa to see more of what this beautiful country has to offer. Our Pop-Ups will showcase a good mix of established artists and emerging talent and will create a wonderful platform for artists who can’t otherwise afford to take their art to an overseas market. And the idea is to show what we can achieve together, all of us, artists, people, companies; visions can become so big when people share them and work together.” 

This private project is also looking for sponsors in South Africa and in Germany to supprt. “I’m a firm believer in the principle of working together to make great things happen,” says Barbara. “We’re looking for companies to join the initiative with small sponsorship packages starting from 5,000 Euro. "

This will help us to transport, set-up, exhibit, cater, pay some staff and promote the art to German audiences – and in turn it will offer companies the chance to engage with a culturally interested audience.
Art is always a talking point and with South African art there’s still so much to be discovered. Pop-up events provide vibrant, modern spaces in which to interact with customers and the exhibitions will provide companies with ample opportunities for marketing, brand-building and customer relationship activities. We believe it will be an exciting alliance for everyone involved.

Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor can contact Barbara Lenhard on +27 (0)79 403 2393 or barbara@thetravellingartgallery.com  

Risks and challenges

The initiative can't rely on selling art to cover the costs - we need sponsors who understand that the support of Arts & Culture is important. In return, there are wide sponsor benefits to ensure a ROI.
