Patreon Newsletter: Cultural Conversations

We have set up a Patreon account.
• We want to make the world a more equitable place to live.
• We want everyone to feel included and nobody to feel isolated.
• We believe coming together around the arts can be transformational.
• We want to create a welcoming environment that people, especially women, are comfortable in.
• We want to create opportunities for people to embrace their creativity and individuality and learn new skills.
• We believe that diverse representation is an important part of our society.
• We believe our community can grow empathy by listening to new experiences.

We are looking at different income streams as part of a sustainable funding plan. At the moment we run on project grants until October 2023. We need to find sources to help us on an ongoing basis. Our hub has become a place of friendship and aroha so there is a responsibility to keep this alive and flourishing.

Patreon helps creators and artists earn a monthly income by providing rewards and perks to their subscribers. Friends who use it have said that it has made a huge difference for them. It’s a bit like a membership which we don’t currently have but also a way to reach out globally.
I love how you can give $5 a month from anywhere in the world and that anyone can be a philanthropist. This is just a cup of coffee a month.
I have set up 4 tiers of membership so I ask if you are willing to support us and become part of our extended family.
These are examples of where the money will be spent:
• Green room refreshments for artists “Thanks so much for organizing last night! I really enjoyed it! I think it went really well! I especially liked the chocolates and cup of tea backstage b4 hand!!! Ahhh… the little things!!” – Guitarist Simon Lusby.
• When we have a Global Stitch product that needs an extra accessory e.g. pinking shears, or an iron and board for finished products.
• Light bulbs, extension leads, screwdrivers, ladders, light hire.
• I often book in JingJing for a head and neck massage and Greisi for pedicures – a much deserved treat for our Global Stitch Up women.
• Food reimbursements for pakoras, empanadas and jackfruit snacks. These are made by the women who regularly attend our space.
• Clothes rails, racks for accessory displays not included in project funding.
• Extra data for internet banking for those volunteering in the space.
• Extra posters, social media boosts.
• Sewing machine maintenance and fixing (no machines, no products).
These are just a few of the hidden costs that you could help with – should you wish to sign up to our Patreon.
