CEL: a fundraiser for the Animate Collection

Maintaining the Animate Collection and sharing its materials online is the foundation of Animate’s charitable activity.

Situation

The charity receives no public funding towards its core costs. Over the last year, whilst pursuing opportunities for revenue support, it became apparent that the organisation could not continue in its existing form. As a result, we will be moving from our current office; Abigail and Gary will be working part-time; and we will sadly be losing the other two members of the team. As such, we want to ensure that the legacy of the Animate Collection is not affected in this new climate.

Solution

CEL will offer limited edition prints of original artworks donated by Animate commissioned artists. It is hoped that from a mix of print sales and online donations through The Big Give site that £5,000 can be raised to cover the direct costs of maintaining the Animate Collection and keeping animateprojects.org live over the next year. All proceeds raised will be used for the continuation of the Animate Collection, and ensuring that it remains freely accessible to a broad international audience.

  • I would really miss the online collection. I have used this with students and for myself. It is stimulating and shows British creativity at its best.

    — Alan Hudson, Senior Lecturer, London Metropolitan University

  • A platform that stimulates new thinking about animation and enables the production of innovative work.

    — Birgitta Hosea, Animation Course Director, Central Saint Martins

  • As a teaching tool it has been invaluable, particularly in view of the limited availability of rare artist films, and for seeing new work by artists.
