Crowdfunding for Arts & Heritage Organisations

September 29, 2016 @ 9:45 am - 4:30 pm

This training event, brought to you by Arts & Business Scotland supporting Resourcing Scotland’s Heritage, will provide a ‘how-to’ guide to crowdfunding for cultural organisations.

There are 8 places for arts organisations and 8 places for heritage organisations to participate in the event which is being delivered by Kirsty Gilchrist of SoLoCo.  The event will include:

    • The who, what and why of crowdfunding
    • Crowdfunding stories
    • Practical group exercises
    • Methodologies
    • Developing your network and target audience

The training will also incorporate a hands-on simulated crowdfund so that you can try out your new skills straight away.

A maximum of two tickets are available for each participating organisation and we are looking for organisations who are seriously considering undertaking a crowdfund and who have a project in mind.

When you book your tickets for the event you will be asked to give some background information on the project you are looking to support:

    • Project name
    • A few descriptive sentences about your project
    • How much money are you looking to raise via your crowdfunding campaign?
    • When are you planning to carry out your crowdfunding campaign?
    • What is unique about this project for your organisation that will appeal to your target audience?
    • What other outcomes would you like to achieve from your crowdfunding campaign?

Tickets cost just £50+VAT per person.
