As most of you are probably aware, the COVID-19 pandemic has been devastating for the creative industry and small businesses. The cultural, economic and social impact the loss of these places will have on the country, on both a local and national level will be devastating and some have turned to crowdfunding to help them survive until better days return.

One of these businesses is Sound Inc studios in Blaydon, Newcastle who have been serving the North-East for over 12 years, providing 4 industry standard rehearsal studios (used by the likes of Years and Years), backline hire, PA system hire and a music supplies shop. They are feeling the knock on effects from the halt of touring, festivals and other musical events but also due to the small size of some of the communal areas, social distancing has meant that the venue will have to remain closed until it is safe and viable to reopen.

Their Crowdfunder campaign, INC it forward offers different tiers of donations and rewards, alongside the option for you to purchase brand new products, which have been cultivated during lockdown. This fund is specifically aimed at helping them explore new avenues of income in the face of COVID-19.

The goal is to reach our £5000 target so they are able to be match funded an additional £5000. While some of this money will help sustain the business, some of it will be deployed in new directions to help diversify their offerings to allow them survive the pandemic.
