Take The Money And Run? was an event about ethics, funding and art that took place at Toynbee Studios, London, on January 29, 2015.
We commissioned Mary Paterson to create a written response to the event,
Ana Matos documented the event, from which she edited the following 5 and 40 minute extracts:
This documentation represents the culmination of our collective work on ethical funding issues over the previous two years (supported by Arts Council England’s Catalyst programme) and we are delighted to make it widely available to everyone who is engaged with these issues.
Subsequently to the event LADA have joined an international line-up of individuals and organisations dedicated to the Fossil Funds Free Commitment indicating that we will not take any oil, coal, or gas corporate sponsorship for our cultural work.
The event was financially supported by Arts Council England through the Catalyst programme, and produced by Live Art Development Agency, Artsadmin, Home Live Art and Platform. A summary of LADA’s Catalyst activities can be read here.
