Support POST Artists’ latest project: Canalology 2014 by donating to us via http://www.sponsume.com/project/canalology

“Canalology 2014″ is a one day festival along the Lea Valley canal in Tottenham, London.

The festival, which takes place on Saturday, 3rd May 2014, has been organised by POST artists’ network and brings together the work of twelve artists and artist groups whose work responds to place.

The aims

With Canalology, POST aims to bring new attention to the role of canals within our cities and their potential as spaces for artistic exploration. It’s important to us that our audience feels as involved and connected to the project as we do – after all Canalology will run alongside the daily lives and histories of those visiting. We aim to find out and present fascinating things about Tottenham; to show this part of the capital in different and interesting ways in the understanding that, while art can temporarily alter the landscape in surprising and magical ways, the character of the canals is a true one off.

We would love to see you in Tottenham on 3rd May and hope you will consider sponsoring our project. We need £16,400 to bring this project to life and we already are almost there with a grant from Arts Council England’s Grants for the arts fund, but we need the last £1500 to make the festival everything we plan it to be! Your support will ensure we can provide a great experience with far reaching publicity, strong local presence, clear signage, high quality artworks and ultimately a strong legacy.
