Philanthropy Workshop

Philanthropy Workshop

A workshop examining how to engage, mobilise and motivate your audience to philanthropise your artistic work.

About this Event

Have you ever wondered “how would philanthropy work for me?” In this 40 minute workshop you’ll talk to the founder of about different strategies you can use to leverage, inspire and motivate philanthropy of your artistic work. This is a grass-roots workshop for professional artists working for themselves ‘on the front line’.

A good funding strategy is a diverse one, and we will directly address how to leverage subscription philanthropy to reach a portion of possible philanthropists you haven’t reached yet. Artists who are curious about whether subscription philanthropy could work for them are most welcome.

We’ll look at your individual art practice and talk in detail amongst the group about you can inspire existing followers and audiences to shift to a subscription platform. We’ll talk about what you’re already doing so that others can learn and benefit from your experience, and you can learn from theirs.

There will be no ‘hard sell’ in this nurturing workshop: we genuinely want to see artists doing the best they can for themselves. Together, we’ll share our strategies, knowing that we are all in this together, and we can all “make it”.

About the workshop

After registration we will send you a few thought-provoking questions to consider before the workshop. Artists will share their approaches so we can work together to either improve them, re-jig them, or so that others may benefit.

The workshop will be held on Zoom in a collaborative discussion. You will need a suitable device, a free Zoom account, and an internet connection.
