Rapid Response Fund

Support the Rapid Response Fund for artists during the Covid-19 crisis as a Founder Supporter.

The CAS Rapid Response Fund seeks to make available in excess of £100,000 to UK based artists.  Supporting museums and galleries as they prepare to welcome their communities into the buildings and collections will be a critical moment as the UK begins to process the current global trauma.  The Rapid Response Fund will enable museums to apply for a new work to be acquired ready for display to these audiences whereby activating collections and museums once again.

We respectfully ask you to consider a donation of £2,500/£5,000/£10,000 to enable the CAS to achieve the target of £100,000 as soon as possible. Donations can be made through the link below or by BACS transfer.

If you would like to discuss your donation, please contact Dida Tait, Head of External Relations, on +44 (0)7834 320004 or email Dida@contemporaryartsociety.org.
