// Event Description

We are very happy to announce our next meetup will take place on Friday 17th August, from 6.30pm to 8.30pm and the topic will be ‘Crowdfunding’.

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.

For every AoDL event we are creating a research area on our collaborative and open wiki platform, TheKnowledge­, where research topics can be explored together to stimulate and increase shared understanding. As this is an open platform we encourage those who know a bit about the theme to create an account on the wiki and edit/add content. You can also mail­ who will upload it for you.

The meetups are open to all and we would be delighted if you would pass this onto a friend or colleague who might be interested.

RSVP now

We look forward to seeing you there!

The AoDL Team


**The post-social social**

We have access to the venue until 8.30pm but hey it’s a Friday night, so why stop the socialising there? For those who want to continue we’ve designated a nearby pub The Red Lion (14 Kingly Street, W1B 5PR) as our ‘after hours’ watering hole.

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