The Fundraising Lab will take a comprehensive approach to developing your fundraising skills, covering:
- How to present yourself and your artistic identity: identifying your Unique Selling Points and your project aims.
- Fundraising Strategies: what avenues are available for your professional development and your creative projects.
- Approaching funders and partners: how to write strong, tailored funding applications.
- Budgeting: how to write a thorough, realistic and appropriate budget.
“I learnt so much in such a short time – and came away feeling energised, stimulated and inspired!” Previous Lab Participant
The Lab will be delivered by Anna Bewick, Creative Producer of Real Circumstance and an Arts Consultant. For Real Circumstance, she has built up a proven fundraising track record, consistently raising funds from Arts Council England, charitable foundations, local and regional councils, co-producers, and private donors; as well as raising funds for clients through her Arts Consultancy.
"The Lab continually brought all of the learning aspects back to us, the participants, and how we can relate this to our practice and way of working. I now have a strong concept about where to go next and how the Lab can continue to be a part of me, long after the weekend is over." Previous Lab Participant
