ART TECHNICIAN EMERGENCY FUND

THE AUCTION WILL CLOSE ON FRIDAY, 15th OF MAY, AT 9PM.


HAPPY BIDDING AND THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT!



Dear Art Lovers,

 

we would like to introduce you to the 

Art Technician Emergency Fund 


A fund to support UK art technicians who have lost their livelihoods due to Covid-19 by fundraising through a silent auction of donated artworks. 


Art Technicians are the back-bone of the art and museum world. Right now, they need assistance to alleviate some of the financial struggle art technicians are and will face in the coming months. This is a chance for you to support the very people that are so important to making exhibitions and art events possible by helping them and their families get through this difficult time.  


The working reality for many art technician is one of multiple precarious job arrangements, so support schemes set up by the government such as the SEISS grant will only help a small percentage of art technicians. Many of us will qualify for very little, or not qualify at all. Additionally, Art Technicians  tend to have additional running costs to be able to do their jobs such as studios, workshops, and storage units for tools and equipment. Right now, a lot of art technicians are in severe financial difficulty and run a very real risk of losing their jobs for good. We want to help by giving art technicians affected now a chance to readjust, and to be in a position to work again in the future.

 

This is how we will distribute the fund: 

Once the auction has closed all those who signed up to the fund will be required to confirm they still require financial aid. We will aim to check as far as we can to assess the real need of people signed up to the fund, but overall we will have to rely on honest declaration of need. The full sum of any  money raised will then be distributed equally between all qualifying individuals signed up to the fund.

 

If you want to contribute, but not take part in the auction, you can also DONATE to our fund - please use the DONATE button on the top of our page.

 

The ATEF is run by:
