Want to produce your own work but stuck on how to raise the money? Unsure how to approach the Arts Council for funding? Curious about what other funding options are out there?
Fundraising For Your Play is a day-long workshop that will provide participants with the information they need to successfully raise the funds to create their artistic projects.
About The Workshop
Participants will be walked through one of the most daunting processes for emerging theatremakers: making an application to the Arts Council. The workshop will cover prep and planning, how to write a compelling application, and top tips for success.
The workshop will also cover approaches to fundraising beyond the Arts Council, and how to put together a strong strategy to support your project.
No preparation is required for the workshop, and it’s not necessary to have chosen a fundraising project. However, those that already have a creative project in mind are encouraged to come in prepared to talk about their idea, as there will be dedicated time given to questions from everyone and discussion of these prepared projects.
Who This Workshop Is For
This workshop is targeted at people looking for additional guidance and support in making successful funding applications. The workshop will assume a basic knowledge of how to put together and manage putting together a project, and will focus most intensively on the financial side of self-producing. Whether you are making your first application, looking to make the leap to Arts Council Funding, or just seeking tips to improve your hit rate with your funding applications, this workshop will have something to offer you. The day is targeted at playwrights, but theatremakers from all backgrounds are welcome.
