All Patrons will be invited to an annual patreon gathering.
Live Art Bistro (LAB) are a small ragtag band of artists who work mostly voluntarily to create cultural happenings in the city of Leeds. Our hard work nurtures and supports countless artists in their journeys and our approach is to provide the space for people to express their freedoms in all forms. Apparently, we are really terrible at writing funding applications, so the income we generate comes directly from the efforts of our labour. We are a not for profit organisation and we put every penny made back into the continued growth of what we do. We have setup this Patreon to enable us to further our goals in supporting artists to create the work they want to make and also so that we can begin to create unique digital content that becomes an extension of our creative output and it able to reach wider audiences.
Our patrons will also be helping with the day to day running costs of our venue and which will free up funding to allow us to continue to support Live Art from the UK and beyond. We have been operating on a shoe string budget, unfunded for over 3 years in our venue on Regent Street and it has only been with the continued support of the community that supports us that we have been able to have a consistent programme of touring work come through our venue. All Patreon subscribers will be invited to our annual Patreon party as a thank you and there will be rewards for different levels of contribution.
We have exciting plans to help get the word out about what we do and to support and promote the artists that come to LAB. See our goals for what your money will help support.
We are constantly looking for new ways to support the live art sector and we will be adding goals to our Patreon page throughout the year.
Thank you for supporting Live Art Bistro.
