New funding - The Cut Digital Archive

Posted: Tuesday 23rd March 2021

We've fundraised £16,000 for new streaming equipment and training, and resource for a visual art project with grants from the East Suffolk Communities Bounce Back Fund and Arts Council England (ACE).

The Cut Digital Archive will be an online resource for audiences to engage with our gallery spaces and artists when they can’t visit us, or we are closed.

Over 200 artists have shown at The Cut and there have been 15 group shows since 2003. Not all them have adequate archiving. The Cut will develop and produce a comprehensive archive, and build on it with the content from upcoming artists and exhibitions. We will get images, articles and publications of previous exhibitions, to create an online digital archive.

Ten local artists will be invited for online interviews and live streamed tours of their studios. These will sit on The Cut website with provision within the ACE funding to upgrade the site. Artists Gina Medcalf, Mary Webb, Coco Crampton, Fabian Peake, Charles Hewlings, and Johann Don-Daniel are confirmed for the project along with Bill Jackson, the last artist to exhibit at The Cut before Lockdown 3.
