Seminar 5: Where is all the money?

King's College London - Council Room, 23 February 2017, 2:00pm

As we are so often reminded, securing funding as a musician is (apparently) becoming increasingly tricky. This seminar will provide useful insight into how to raise money for your project.

– How can I think intelligently about types of funding out there?
– Who are the best institutional donors for emerging musicians?
– Is public funding through ACE GftA a good potential source of funding?
– How can I think creatively for new fundraising possibilities?
– What have been the recent trends in direct funding for individual musicians?
– What are the common pitfalls for musicians applying to specific project funds?
– What is the best way to communicate my project and myself pre and post-funding?
– Is private philanthropy really an option? How would it work?
