The session includes examples of successful campaigns along with practical exercises to help you develop the skills to pitch your ideas effectively. Through the course of the day participants will gain the background knowledge to turn their crowdfunding proposals into a reality. The session is open to artists with some experience of writing proposals and securing funds for projects. It has also proven to be of great value to other arts professionals such as arts organisers, cultural producers and curators looking to extend their skills base.
How to develop audiences through crowdfunding is led by Hen Norton, a social artist, creative producer, experienced workshop leader and co-founder of the crowdfunding platform Since the site’s merger towards the end of 2012 with People Fund It, she has turned her attention to exploring how we can better understand the crowdfunding model and apply these findings to a wider context, as a tool for the social and creative sectors to build sustainable business models, systems and networks.

Charges: £20 for a-n members and/or members of Creative Greenhouse. £30 for non-members. Includes coffee, tea and soft drinks (lunch is not included, bring your own or buy on the day, there are plenty of places nearby).

Further details: This event is aimed at visual artists and project managers at a mid-career stage. Event runs 10am until 4pm.
