Get Funding Ready for 2016

After successfully piloting a session on funding in Summer 2014, this one-day seminar on the art of fundraising will take place on Tuesday 23 February 2016 at the Brady Arts Centre, in partnership with the Musicians’ Union and Community Music. The event is supported by Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy, and we are delighted to be able to offer subsided tickets at £25.00 to Sound Connections members.

There’s something for everyone – whether you’re a seasoned fundraiser looking to try an alternative route in business modelling and planning, or if you’re a freelance musician new to the game and looking for some top tips…

  • The day kicks off with a panel discussion featuring representatives from a range of funding organisations with an opportunity for you to ask the question you’ve always needed to ask and never had the chance!
  • Case studies from previous attendees of Get Funding Ready, organisations and individuals all with different experiences of fundraising lay out how they acheived their goals and pass on advice and tips.
  • Melissa Wong, Grants & Learning Officer at the National Foundation for Youth Music, will deliver a presentation on applying their Outcomes Framework to your funding applications in order to provide clear aims and objectives to your prospective bids.
  • A series of workshops in the afternoon will take you through a broad range of topics related to funding – you will get to select two to attend.
  • We are delighted that Maria Turley, Relationship Manager (Music) at Arts Council England, will be running one-to-one funding surgeries for delegates with a burning question or a specific idea for a project they are seeking funds for.
