We aim to raise £750 to help add more value and reach more people by adding panel discussions, more tours and commissioning texts to Index's existing programme. 

To say thank you for supporting us you will be able to take a share of Index how with you with rewards such as artists editions, pin badges, tote bags and more. 

Index is a new visual arts festival for Leeds and Wakefield taking place during Yorkshire Sculpture International. Taking place from 22 June to 29 September 2019.  

With your support we will be able to build on and enhance our existing programme of exhibitions, performances, screenings and more, featuring work by over 300 local, national and international artists across 40 sites.

With your help we want to continue to develop a sense of place for Leeds as an inspiring & nurturing location for artists to practice.

It is a long journey for emerging artists to achieve a solo show within major art institutions and our programme will help our local creative talent develop their practice and to reach national and international audiences. 

How your money will be put to use:  

£50 would allow us to give a free highlights tour of the festival 

£100 would provide a training session for our trainees to help their development as emerging creative producers

£200  would help support an artists fee to production of new work or delivering a workshop 

£500 would supports an artist commission
