We are a network of volunteers. You can join us simply by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.You can support us in several ways:
Membership of QAN is currently free. We rely on donations.
From time to time we also fundraise for particular projects supported by QAN. At present, we are seeking funds to support part of the Loving Earth Project, a project aimed to help people engage creatively with sustainability issues, in part through a community textile project. This project is being run jointly by Woodbrooke and QAN. We are working closely with Woodbrooke on this. They are responsible for supporting the Quaker element of the project , and QAN is responsible for supporting the non-Quaker element working with community and craft groups in Britain and beyond, as well as individuals. QAN is also responsible for the important exhibiting element of the project and we are planning to take it to Glasgow in autumn 2021 for COP 26, and touring thereafter.
Please consider donating money for the Loving Earth Project or for Quaker Arts Network more generally, or holding a fundraising event. Please let us know if you plan to do this.
MAKING PAYMENTS :
Payments for donations or purchases can also be made by BACS to: HSBC Branch 40 07 30 “Quaker Arts Network” account 42286459.
Cheques should be made out to Quaker Arts Network and sent to the QAN Treasurer, John Lampen, 21 Heathfield Gardens, Stourbridge, DY83YD . Please let him know what the payment is for.
If you make a payment by BACS, please email email@example.com to tell them whether the payment is to support a particular project, such as the Loving Earth Project, to pay for a purchase or booking, or a donation for general purposes .
As we are a Quaker Recognised Body (recognised by Britain Yearly Meeting) Meetings are able to make donations to QAN. Donations from individuals are also most welcome. However we are not able to claim Gift Aid; we are not a registered charity and our turnover is too small to warrant this. You can see our Annual Reports and accounts on our Documents page.
