503Studio How To…Fundraise
To create extraordinary work for an audience takes talent, time and…money. Neither can exist without the other. Raising funds to deliver a project has always been a challenge, in the current climate it feels terrifying. Executive Director and fundraising expert, Andrew Shepherd, will help alleviate some of the fear around how, who and when to ask for funding, as well as some practical steps to creating and delivering a fundraising plan.
Theatre503’s How To… are Pay What You Can, thanks to Arts Council England’s Emergency Grant and our Share The Drama scheme.
