The Icon Project got some good news recently. After careful negotiation, we have managed to lower our basic expenses for being here which released funding that now allows us to start some renovation works and expand and improve our exhibition area. As a charity, The Icon Project has a precarious existence in these tough times, so we like to share our positive experiences with you when they happen.
The renovations give us additional space so exhibiting artists have more space to show their work and we feel the changes greatly improve the ‘feel’ of the room.
In other news, we have also expanded our list of volunteers in the Icon Factory and hope to have our busiest year yet. No-one gets paid a wage from our activities, all the money raised is redistributed between the artists and the Icon Walk.
