Buy the Vagina Museum time

Buy the Vagina Museum time

Why we need your help

A year ago, a successful crowdfunding campaign enabled the world’s first bricks-and-mortar museum dedicated to vaginas, vulvas and the gynaecological anatomy to open. In just 18 weeks, this little museum saw over 110,000 visitors, with an ovary-whelmingly positive reception. 

The world needs a Vagina Museum. We’ve proved that.

But due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, there’s a bump in the road. The bricks-and-mortar space has had to temporarily close. In a time of great uncertainty, one thing is certain: you can bet your fanny we’re planning on reopening as soon as it is safe to do so.

Here’s the challenge we face: the Vagina Museum is reliant on income from the gift shop within the premises, and donations made within the space. While our doors are closed, we know we’re going to struggle to make ends meet. We need to make sure our workers are paid, we need to meet existing financial commitments and we need to make sure we are still a sustainable organisation.

We’re asking you to help buy us some time so we can get through this period of closure and bring you an extraVAGanza of exhibitions and events when we are open again. Our monthly overheads during this time are approximately £20,000 a month, so we are aiming to raise £25,000 to cover our initial month's closure plus all associated fees. We are grateful to Camden Market for waiving our rent during this period of closure. 

What if we exceed our target?

 

If the closure goes longer than one month, we will need to make sure we have enough funds during however many months we must remain closed. If we go over this again, we will use the extra money to commission artists, writers, creatives and museum practitioners to make online content for us.

What if we don't reach our target?

 

During this time, we will also be discussing funding options with grant-providers in the UK and getting advice from HMRC on deferring certain taxes and seeing if we are eligible for any reliefs.
