This Saturday I'll be running a fundraising workshop in Milton Keynes as part of Tracing the Pathway's Groundwork MK season - it's free so if you're around do pop along!
Fundraising 101 For Artists
Milton Keynes Arts Centre
Groundwork producer Laura Sweeney will offer insight into funding streams available to artists, specifically introducing Arts Council England's new funding streams: National Lottery Arts Council Project Grants and Developing Your Creative Practice, providing advice on how to apply to these grants and what funders are looking for when reviewing applications. From her perspective as a producer, Laura will also share information on how to financially support and resource a project, looking at alternative forms of support via social media and crowdfunding.
Lots going on in June this year. Hope you can make it along to support some of this work!
I’m super pleased to be the new Artists’ Advisor at Artsadmin.
I’ll be there part-time and will continue with my freelance producing the rest of the time. Exciting!
Artsadmin has a great Artist Development programme which includes advisories, workshops, Weekenders, bursaries and more - if you work in the contemporary arts and want some support - check it out.
Last week I had the pleasure of going to Experimentica, Cardiff with Greg Wohead to work on his sunrise to sunset performance of Call it a Day. The nearly 14-hour durational performance was such an interesting experience, with some audience members staying in the space for over 2 hours and others visiting multiple times throughout the day.
I don't think I'll ever be able to hear this song again without mentally replacing all of the lyrics with 'corn and soy beans'...
Here are a few amazing pics from Paul Blakemore of the day:

UPDATE: when I made the template on the launch day there was an omission of the support in kind finance question. This has now been added to the portal - so download new template below
