Art Funding: Bad Cola and Radical Renewable
Thursday 26 January 2017, 1pm online here.
Kathrin Böhm co-founded international artist initiative Myvillages with Wapke Feenstra and Antje Schiffers in 2003. One of their projects is Company Drinks, a registered community interest company in east London that works with local communities and resources to develop, produce and sell a drinks range which include Bad Cola, Green Hop Beer, various sodas and cordials. Company Drinks is art in the shape of a community drinks enterprise, and links the history of east Londoners going hop-picking in Kent to the set up of a new type of company.Initiated by Ellie Harrison in 2015, the Radical Renewable Art + Activism Fund (RRAAF) aims to be a new and autonomous funding scheme, which will use renewable energy to offer ‘no strings attached’ grants for art-activist projects in the UK.
Kathrin and Ellie will talk about their projects and more during this online conversation. Visit NN’s Youtbe channel where the conversation will be live streamed on Thursday 26 January 2017, 1pm.
