SUPPORT TICTAC ART CENTRE
Call for donations
Due to the current sanitary crisis, all our group activities are interrupted.
While we are considering structural alternatives in the short and long term, you can help to ensure the future of this artistic adventure by contributing with a donation.
Art during the times of Covid-19?
A big part of the artistic community depends on their real-time work to make the ends meet: no activities mean no income! This situation is a double penalty for alternative and non-subsidized art.
Tictac Art Centre -an independent project of 1,5 years old- is at serious risk! As a young initiative, we don’t benefit from any subsidy as we were in the process of getting public recognition…. At the present time, we don’t fulfill the requirements (years of existence) to get compensation for our cease of activities during the global home lockdown.
Our current situation
Tictac Art Centre is a non-profit organization: all the income generated by our activities is used to cover running costs*, pay the rent (we do not own the building), and pay artists/teachers fees when they come to teach**. The organization itself is functioning thanks to the help of a small group of volunteers. Moreover, Tictac Art Centre needs € 9 000-10 000 in a monthly basis to cover the most basic expenses. Unfortunately, we have to pay these costs even if there are no activities happening in our building.
