Line-up


Event Description
Crowdfunding is a process where individuals, groups or organisations reach out to their audiences via their online social networks and ask for contributions towards projects. It is usually conducted through new purpose built platforms such as Kickstarter or indiegogo.

People fund a range of activities through crowdfunding; independent journalism, start-up companies, free software development, scientific research or films. More recently UK based platforms specifically for creative projects have sprung up such as; WeDidThis or WeFund and it has become a focus for those advocating new strategies for philanthropy in the Arts.

Crowdfunding requires increased transparency between an organisation and their audience. Through it you are offering a more complete understanding of your business and asking them to become involved in the nuts and bolts of what it takes to produce work. It’s a labour intensive process that requires thoughtful planning, an ability to narrativise progress and good community management. RSVP Now!!

The AoDL meetups are presented by OpenMute in partnership withThe Photographers' Gallery
