Our partnership with Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy involves a number of Fundraising sessions open to Visual Arts professionals taking place in the New Year. Booking opens today for the first one to take place on Friday January 9th at Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead.
Spinning Plates is a fundraising workshop for small visual arts organisations and individuals. With diminishing resources and increasing pressure to fundraise from alternative sources, how can small organisations with a lack of capacity consider a realistic, achievable and deliverable approach to fundraising when most work with a skeleton staff?
Through a mixture of presentations and breakout sessions given by David Byrne, Director of New Diorama, Producer and Fundraising Consultant Philippa Barr and Amanda Rigali, Head of the Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy programme, this event will cover how small organisations can navigate and leverage significant levels of individual giving, engage donors and patrons and understand the kind of support their organisation could attract in order to develop sustainable fundraising activity.
