Vox Liminis ran a crowdfunding campaign through December 2016, inviting people to build together the new and dynamic phase we are entering as an organisation. It was hugely successful in gathering support, but was even more brilliant in gathering together the stories of those involved in Vox, from all different angles – have a read at the stories behind the daily doors here: www.voxliminis.co.uk/category/opendoors/
As a bridge-building organisation, we work with people during and after imprisonment, prison officers, practitioners, families, criminologists, musicians and artists to help reshape criminal justice in Scotland. Having established positive relationships with many different institutions and organisations across the country, we now find that demand for what we do outstrips our organisational capacity to do it!
Over the last 3 years we’ve helped fathers behind bars to reconnect with their kids; invited people in prison to write and record with some of Scotland’s most inspiring musicians, and helped people who work in one of society’s most misunderstood sectors to find their voices, on radio and onstage.
In the run-up to Christmas we’ll be introducing you to some of the many faces and stories that have weaved the patchwork of our story. Click the door each day to cross the threshold with us into this new chapter. We invite you to click the ‘Donate’ button and open the doors wider.
With the money we raise together, we’re going to open a new Vox base (with our own front door!). Establishing & maintaining relationships is fundamentally important to us; we’re building a community for change that doesn’t disappear at the end of a workshop or recording session, and that needs a place to call ‘home’ – one that is visible and easy to access.
To recognise all of you joining with us in this, the names of all donors will be incorporated into a new piece of art in our new home.
In the spirit of crowd-funding, you won’t go unrewarded if you contribute to the campaign. As we near our target of £15,000, collectively we will unlock different levels of reward!
Level 1: Once we pass £1,000 we’ll send all donors a previously unreleased Vox song
Level 2: At £5000 we’ll gather together some of our Vox musicians and invite you to witness a live-stream of an office gig!
Level 3: Once we’ve got £10,000 committed, we’ll have a party! And everyone who has contributed will be invited.
Boss Level: If we reach our target of £15,000, all donors will receive a super-secret (for now) and exclusive gift from us.
Your donation to Open Doors will be the one that takes us all one step closer to home; one step closer to opening the door (literally and figuratively) from which will emerge the next exciting period of Vox Liminis.
Open Doors was hugely successful in all ways, and you can find all the doors and stories here!
