On Tuesday 29 November, Cryptic is participating for the first time in #givingtuesday – a global day of giving.

On this day, we would like to invite you to become a Cryptic Angel and be a part of this special event.

Nurturing talent is at the heart of our work, whether providing support to an emerging artist in making those first steps to establish their career, commissioning new works that tour the UK and internationally or bringing you performances from today’s most inspiring artists, we depend on committed supporters and audience members like you.

This year, we have provided support to more than 20 young artists, and shown 11 works in 17 cities across 8 countries. With your help and support, we can do more.

“Organisations like Cryptic are an invaluable resource to the local arts scene in helping people find their feet in what can be a daunting and intimidating world.” Cryptic Nights Artist 2016

No matter what level of support you are able to give, #givingtuesday is a perfect opportunity for our community of supporters to come together to support the next generation of creative artists.

As an example, 60 people giving £5 per month (Bronze Angel), 24 people giving £12.50 per month (Silver Angel), or 12 people giving £25 per month (Gold Angel) annually will help to support 7 Cryptic Nights artists.

“Having an organisation take our work seriously and be so supportive has boosted our confidence no end, particularly given that Cryptic believed in the idea before the piece was finished. It is a remarkable leap of faith and one we will be eternally grateful for.” Cryptic Nights Artist 2014

You can make a gift online now by visiting our website. Alternatively, if you would like to find out more please call Caroline Thompson on +44 (0)141 354 0544 or email planning@cryptic.org.uk

I do hope that you will support us.
