'Astral Fields: Northern and Southern Hemisphere', Nina Royle, 2021

CAST’s small team work hard to secure the funding that allows us to keep our programmes for schools, families and arts audiences free and accessible to all. We are currently fortunate to have the support of the Garcia Family Foundation towards our learning programming and that of Arts Council England towards various strands of talent development programming that will run through to summer 2022. It’s essential that we match this funding with other strands of income, to continue to maintain our wonderful building, pay the staff that make things work behind the scenes and to ensure we’re financially secure for years to come.

Even small donations can make a big difference, not least because it is a way for us to show our funders the strength of our local and national support. Whether you are a regular at our film nights, enjoy dropping in for looped screenings of artist’s work, love bringing your children along to our open access workshops or simply admire and want to support our work, there has never been a better time to make a donation. We have recently joined the Charities Aid Foundation, which provides a platform for one off or regular donations and artist and CAST studio holder Nina Royle has kindly created this beautiful design, which we are offering as a thank you to donors.

Anyone making a one off donation of £12 or more, or a regular monthly donation of £5 or more will be able to collect a specially printed tea towel featuring Nina’s design from CAST Café from XX December. We are also happy to post tea towels out to an address of your choice, but ask that you make a donation of at least £15 to cover the post and packaging.

If you would like a tea towel sent by post please email the address to [email protected] after making a donation. We would be happy to include a short message if you are sending the tea towel as a gift.
