London Art Charity Faced with Funding Cuts Decides to Print Its Own Money
Faced with an imminent cut to their funding, a 20-year-old London art charity is fighting for survival by creating their own quantitative easing — by printing emergency money. The London Printworks Trust (LPT) has enlisted 10 of its distinguished artistic friends and supporters to create and donate artwork to be hand printed as a limited and numbered edition of ‘art notes’ to be sold to raise the vital missing funding. The sale of LPT-editioned £10s, £20s and £30s art notes is going on now. You can check out what's for sale and purchase here. We think its a fairly ingenious way to try and save this non-profit.
