All about Crowdfunding

Boogie Bill on China Street, Lancaster

I have been invited to join a panel of speakers in November to talk about Crowdfunding, what it is and my experience of successfully using it to finance my Offstage project in 2013.

The invitation has come from the Arts Development Team at Lancashire County Council and alongside me will be local artists and representatives from local arts groups to talk about our experiences to Arts organisations and emerging artists who may be considering Crowdfunding as a solution to the funding of specific projects.

If you’re interested and would like to come along, here’s the details:

Crowdfunding – an option for your organisation or project
Friday 21 November 2014 1.00 pm – 4.30 pm.

What exactly is Crowdfunding? Is it right for your organisation or project? Maybe you have tried it and failed to make it work?

In this seminar you will learn how to choose the right platform, define your audience, navigate fee structures, pitch your message at the right level, do it at the right time, deliver after the event and stay in touch with your supporters.

Learn from artists and creative organisations who have done it, plus tips from a Crowdfunding platform.
