Notes, tips and toolkits to use for your small organisation or project
On 9 March VASW organised a fundraising workshop, delivered by the fantastic Amanda Rigali from Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy at Spike Island, Bristol. The workshop gave insights to individuals and representatives of small organisations. There was a great mix of people, mostly from small organisations or artist-led initiatives. Most people there had responsibility for many aspects of organisational operation, not just fundraising and so the tone of the event responded to the multiplicity of demands of the the attendees.
I jotted down a few key hints and tips during the workshop, but Amanda's presentation (downloadable) gives a brilliant overview of current challenges in fundraising today.
Hints and Tips:
Working towards a South West where talented artists thrive, and a resilient and connected visual arts ecology that inspires more engaged and diverse audiences to value and advocate for its work.
