Find The Funds: Thinking creatively and looking beyond the obvious to fund your projects

Trusts and foundations are one way to fund your projects, but the funding rounds are extremely competitive and getting feedback on your submission is almost impossible. It can feel like a black box. Join musician, entrepreneur and educator Susan Eldridge (Notable Values) for a special session on thinking creatively about project funding.

The session will cover topics including:  

  • reverse engineering your ideas
  • creating a problem statement
  • articulating the non-arts value of your project 
  • the difference between a good idea and a good business idea

Bring a pen and paper - you'll want to make notes at this exciting Q and A workshop session.

There will also be opportunities for you to ask questions, so have them ready or submit them in advance!
