The Mill is a shared studio space for creatives of all types. Our hope is to encourage and help artists flourish by giving them a space to pursue their craft. We love that The Mill is also a multifunctional space for events and creative programming. Our goal is to engage Bristol with events that will add to and build the arts culture in the community.
In order to do that we need your help!
Your donations will do two things:
1.) Enable creatives (including us!) to grow and blossom by giving them the affordable space to produce incredible art work, and
2.) Support our programs throughout this next year and allow us to offer even more events to the Bristol community.
By keeping our start up costs low we will be able more freely pour into connecting with the right people and hosting lots of fun events.
Would you consider helping us make that happen?
Risks and challenges
Risk: We feel our biggest challenge right now is long term sustainability and being able to continue hosting events at low costs.
Solution: With your contributions we will be able to cover almost all our start up costs and have little to no monthly overhead. This will free us up to focus on hosting more ongoing events which will build trust and professionalism in the arts community and Bristol as a whole.
Risk: A second challenge is collecting the right members to join The Mill as resident artists. Having members who rent and work at The Mill is also key to our sustainability. How do we find these members?
Solution: Part of how we've already met and networked with other artists is by going to events and exhibitions locally. We want to continue that but also host events of our own because it raises the potential of meeting other like minded creatives along the way. The best way to draw them into our space is by them seeing it and getting a real feel for what it might be like to work there. We feel our doors need to be open in order for us to grow as a collective of artists.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
