Now where can I get funding? #ramble #art

I’m half asleep this morning but as usual, I’ll allow you into the uncharted areas of my mind and share my thoughts with you. This website is called a Zillion Ideas because I am always having crazy ideas. Some ideas I act on and some ideas wither and die. I have an idea for an art project and I hoped to get funding for it but that is in danger of withering. I’m trying to find a way of getting what I want. I’m going to do a memories box to take to retirement homes full of things from the past and pictures. If I can find a suitable box I think that is one idea I can see through. One crazy Idea I have had for a while is to dress as a Victorian gentleman at Christmastime. Even though it is the middle of summer, the idea persists and grows. I needed a long overcoat but I have now modified the plan to a short overcoat (because I have one of those), a top hat and waistcoat. I would also wear my fingerless gloves. The image should be a cross between Scrooge and Fagin. The idea took a crazy twist this week when I was counting brand new shiny pound coins. Wouldn’t it be great if I could give children pound coins like a Victorian gentleman giving a sovereign for their trouble? Maybe a pound to every child who says Merry Christmas or sings a carol? Now, where can I get funding?

Now, where can I get funding?

I’ve been researching funding all this week. I want to propose that we try to get lottery funding to replace our lost pavilion in the park with a new one complete with toilets and a car park. It would cost a lot of money. Where can I get funding? I’ve been doing research and a park in an adjacent town got funding and a new pavilion so why not us?

Art funding

This is the picture I have in the Sandwell Art Trails exhibition. Now, where can I get funding to develop my photographic art? I’m going to look at one source this week. I have to keep on trying. Right?


I’ve had this picture exhibited in the Manor hospital since 2012. I’ve been back a few times to try to capture the same scene again with a DSLR but it is never the same.

Community Champion

I was asked to so family photos last year and Walsall Council made me a community champion so I could do that. I had to have an enhanced DBS for that because it was with children. I’ve been asked to do that again this year for charity. I have more experience of group photos now but I’ll  still take more equipment with me this year.

I have paid for all my equipment myself and never ask for funding. I think it is time to ask, where can I get funding? There is an opportunity now that I have considered that might fund a better camera and some gallery prints. We have to try to do these things even when the odds seem against us.

I think I need to go out and take photos and relax. The weather is showery but I need inspiration for more ideas! I think I will end today’s post with even more photos. If you like my ideas, you can follow my blog by entering your email address at the top of the sidebar or follow me on Twitter for updates. There are also links on my Facebook page.
