  • analyse the diversity of your income streams and identify the potential for additional funding from a range of sources and types(eg earned income, crowdfunding, sponsorship)

Tutor – Laura Drane
Laura is an experienced bidwriter and fundraiser having brought in sums from a few hundred pounds to a few hundred thousand pounds for arts and cultural events and programmes over the last twenty years.

Her background and work still rests in creative producing of festivals, events and tours, and so this session is rooted in her learned experience of having to raise funds.

All A2:Connect CPD and professional learning events are free and schools in the Central South region can claim up to £150 for supply cover.
