Crowdfunder! Donate to help CDS survive and help independent dance artists.

Help Chisenhale Dance Space (CDS) to help independent artists coming out of lockdown. At the core of our 40-year history of championing experimental dance is the lively community of artists and local residents.

Your donations will directly pay independent artists who have been hit hardest by the impact of COVID to use our space for the artistic practice.

50% of all public donations will go directly to CDS Member artists as no-strings attached bursaries, with the other 50% covering the space hire for them use.

Your donations will help ensure that both CDS as an organisation, and our artistic community will survive and continue to produce radical dance and performance.

We’re looking to raise £10,000 to support CDS to support independent artists to work in our studios.

Up to £5000 is now going to be matched by the Mayor of London’s Back to Business Fund, with those funds going towards business transformation, making our premises COVID-secure and adaptable to a socially-distant model.

Plus, as a registered charity, we can claim an additional 25% on what you donate through Gift Aid, if you’re a UK tax payer.

That all mean that CDS could receive £2.25 for every £1 you donate, so there’s never been a better time to donate.
