Crowdfunding Campaign Launched

Today the crowd funding campaign for Art on a Ukulele was launched on phundee.com! We have combined forces with Art on a Postcard, Mick Rooney RA and Pete Howlett Ukuleles to help raise funds for the Hepatitus C Trust.

30 ukuleles have been painted by some of the worlds leading contemporary artists and will be put up for auction. But before they are sold they will be played by the orchestra at an intimate fundraising concert at the Jazz Cafe, London.

To get the project past the finished line, Art on a Ukulele have launched a crowd funding campaign to help to raise £6000 to pay for the production costs. Couriering the instruments around the UK and Europe, creating bespoke display stands and cases to exhibit and carry the ukuleles and putting on the event are still costs they need to find.

The Crowdfunding campaign has lots of great rewards on offer, including a chance to perform with the orchestra in London at The Jazz Cafe, signed merchandise, tickets and a chance to own Art on a Plectrum, a complimentary project to Art on a Ukulele.

There are 30 days to reach the goal. We believe that with just this extra bit of help we can bring together a truly unusual audio visual project and the crowdfunding alone will have helped spread precious awareness for the charity.
