This one-day hands on workshop helps participants to identify and build their audiences and make the most of networks and social media through crowdfunding and crowdsourcing platforms. 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 Henrietta Norton, an independent creative producer, director and writer and co-founder of the crowdfunding platform wedidthis.org.
This event is aimed at creatives and project managers at a mid-career stage, who are living and/or working in Leicestershire, or Rutland.
