Spit & Sawdust

“Spit & Sawdust is a young, artist run organisation. We rely heavily on the volunteer time our directors put in and do not receive regular funding, but from the start we wanted to take a professional approach to the way we work. Whenever we ask an artist to work with us we pay them, and we pay them as much as we can afford, in the same way we pay other people for their skills and time who work with us. We treat the art programme the way we treat how we run our café and our skate park, and that is that peoples contributions must be recognised – this means paying artists.”
