    arts crowdfunding success stories


    Look outside your hood

    It’s easy to dream up rewards for donors when you have something tangible to provide. Fundraising for the production of a short film such as Kindred ticks that box with the opportunity to attend the screening. But what if people can’t attend an event as a reward?

    So what’s been stopping you from tapping into the funds from the crowd? Could it be that you don’t think you have a mass appeal? Well at Creative Foyer we love this arts crowdfunding success story because it only took 82 people to make it a reality. - See more at: http://www.creativefoyer.com.au/dev/inspire/crowdpleasers#sthash.UQyHzUqr.dpuf
