Tuesday, 25 Jun

£21.35 - £64.05

Do you struggle to find funding for your creative projects? Maybe you don’t know where to start looking for sources of funding. Perhaps you’ve been unsuccessful with past funding applications and you don’t know why. Or maybe the jargon is just too much. Finding finance to get your project off the ground is a perennial problem for artists and arts organisations, but help is at hand.

This workshop will focus on securing funding for participatory arts projects through trusts, foundations and grants. Aimed both at the complete beginner as well as people with some experience who want to improve their success rate, this half day course will guide you through:

Finding suitable funders

Writing a convincing project outline or case for support

Understanding what funders want

Making your application the best it can be

Examples of projects will be provided for use in the workshop, but if you are currently fundraising for a specific project then you are very welcome to work on this during the session.

The course will be delivered by Emma Collins, an arts consultant who specialises in strategy, business development, fundraising and creative project management. In the past year Emma has raised nearly £1M for her clients. She has over a decade of experience working in the charitable sector, including 4 years as the Executive Director of a Glasgow-based arts organisation, where she was responsible for all aspects of fundraising.

Please contact [email protected] if you have any access or dietary requirements. Tea / coffee / water and snacks will be provided. Please bring a calculator, paper and a pen/pencil.
