Fundraising in the arts is an emerging field that requires specialised knowledge and skill sets. This course will enable you to expand funding options and consider fundraising as an alternative source of revenue for your arts organisation. To help develop your competencies and build a strong foundation in this discipline, LASALLE College of the Arts is partnering with the National Arts Council (NAC) to run a course on the essentials of fundraising.
The workshop comprises of a one-and-a-half-day workshop and one-hour clinic which is to be completed two weeks after the workshop. Attendees will work on their assignment individually in the first half of the second day.
After a successful twelfth run since its inception in 2015, the workshop is back with a refreshed curriculum developed by Professor Bill Byrnes who has over 40 years of arts management and fundraising experience. Current topics include fundraising in the COVID-19 era and organisational self-assessment methods to review website and social media presence conducted by Usha Menon, a sought after trainer and practitioner in fundraising, with over 33 years of experience.
All participants will leave the course with a fundraising strategy for their organisation or for a specific campaign.
