Alternative Funding Strategies for Artists Class
On October 15th (a Tuesday) we’re gonna be breaking down what we’ve learned over the past seven years in regards to different funding models for artists and what the advantages and disadvantages are for each. Come join us!
Artists and cultural producers are increasingly turning to funding sources outside of the traditional methods. This workshop and seminar will explore traditional and new models for funding creative practice and discuss their benefits and disadvantages. We’ll also touch on the importance of developing social capital, along with practical strategies for building your brand and network. Participants should be ready to investigate their own support needs and be willing to contribute their own insight and experiences.
This workshop will take place over one 3-hour session with topics to include:
*Pros and cons of traditional funding sources
*Opt-Out Strategies: fee-for-service, barter, trade, co-ops, and secondary income
*Making Byproducts: production goods, economies of scale, and working with “middle-men”
*Selling your skills or surplus
*Community Supported Practice: Indirect funding, Subscriptions, MicroPayments, Crowdfunding
*Leveraging social capital
