Creativity, collaboration and a celebration of emerging art: MADE IT lands in Liverpool
Promoting a variety of ‘artist-led antics up north,’ Short Supply bridge the gap between artists and arts organisations. Producing exhibitions, talks, workshops… and now a podcast, Short Supply create environments for artists in the north-west and beyond to flourish, and their mission is clear – ‘be the change we want to see.’
Mollie Balshaw and Rebekah Beasley established Short Supply shortly after graduating in 2019, aiming to support artists who feel a lack of support and community after leaving art school. Since then, the organisation has gone from strength to strength, collaborating with Islington Mill, SOUP, Manchester Pride, Manchester Art Gallery, the Institute of International Visual Arts and the Whitworth Gallery among others, all while battling a global pandemic, a cost-of-living crisis, and the ongoing precarity around arts funding in the UK.
