OKR studios (now Livesey Exchange 2) crowdfunding campaign
We raised £53,754 between May and June 2016, from 209 supporters
OKR studios crowdfunding campaign: May to August 2016
We, the Livesey Exchange team ran a crowdfunding campaign ‘OKR studios’ and thanks to 209 individuals, businesses and organisations raised £53,754.
The project received the maximum Mayor of London pledge (£20K) and attracted funding from Airbnb and the Southwark Tenant Fund.
Funding raised as part of the crowdfunding campaign will be used to kick-start the project on-site and make the garages useable for a programme that requires little infrastructure. Further funding for the construction works will be sourced from additional funders.
