Short Supply’s mission is to address the barriers emerging artists’ face to education, employment, stable income, housing and good mental health by bridging the gap between them and professional opportunities.
This aim is at the heart of every event, mentorship session, podcast episode, talk, workshop, brew, party, protest and plate of food.
Through the provision of must-have skills and a supportive network, we empower communities to collaborate and pursue their own goals, instigating social change by acknowledging the power of collective working. We treat artists as professionals, creating platforms for their work to increase employment opportunities.
Our core values of collaboration, imagination and equity guide us to encourage artists to take agency in their career paths, and fight back against the scarcity mindset that disproportionately holds marginalised people back in the industry.
