Top tips for fundraising – grow local


Solen is an arts project manager, curator and fundraiser. At Space4, she is currently developing Anam Cara. Working at the intersection of art, space and fairer economies, Anam Cara imagines a more equitable and open culture sector.

In this workshop, Solen will share her top 10+ tips to empower you to fundraise locally through relationship-building with local authorities, charities, businesses and community groups.

We’ll look at Space4 as a case study. Recognising how local support was a key success factor in its early development, and how it helped sustain a socially engaged, affordable and flexible co-working offer in Islington.

Next, we’ll facilitate a discussion where we’d like to hear from participants’ successes and challenges, creating a shared space where we can learn from each other.

The workshop will be held in person at Space4.
