Everyone’s favourite, Cardiff-based, volunteer-run art-space The Abacus is doing an all-day festival fundraiser extravaganza on Saturday 9 May, and you are all invited!
With an art auction, workshops, a jumble sale, street food, home brewed chai, cocktails, local real ale and live music from the likes of Junior Bill & The Scallies, The Brwmys, Third Party, One Time Alive, Efa Supertramp and more TBA, this promises to be a corker of an event!
For the last year The Abacus has aimed to provide Cardiff with a grassroots, creative and open-minded space that allows artists, musicians and other creatives to explore, challenge and experiment within a supportive environment.
The Abacus runs on the passion and commitment of a handful of volunteers who give their time to run an entirely not-for-profit arts space. However, the cost of the building, recent break-ins, and essential repair call for your help! The Abacus will use the money to support Cardiff’s thriving art-scene and continue providing subsidised galleries, studios, rehearsal rooms and event spaces.
Our favourite hooping teacher Elliecopter will also be teaching a hoop workshop at 4pm (suggested donation of £4): hoops supplied! Hoop workshop Facebook event
Come along on Saturday 9 May 2015, for a true Abacus style knee’s-up and help us raise the funds for a sustainable future!
