The fight for funding is never-ending for any independent musician or music business. Whether you’re trying to record an album, break into a market or develop new work, it’s important to consider all possible revenue opportunities. This workshop will provide you with an overview of the foundations of fundraising and principles that all arts workers need to know, including the basics of arts philanthropy and sponsorship. You’ll hear examples of successful campaigns and you’ll be introduced to the Australian Cultural Fund, a fundraising platform managed by Creative Partnerships Australia and designed specifically to raise funds for Australian artists. Walk away with some new ways of thinking, useful tips and a realistic picture of what to expect so you can be ahead of the game when you start fundraising.
