Location: The Picture Gallery, Foundling Museum, 40 Brunswick Square, London WC1N 1AZ
To kick off 2016, we are excited to host a panel discussion entirely dedicated to fundraising in the arts. This is a partnership event with the Arts Fundraising & Philanthropy Programme and the Institute of Fundraising Cultural Sector Network, aiming to to develop a network of young fundraisers in London.
We are very pleased that fundraising specialists and arts leaders accepted our invitation and you will have the opportunity to hear from Michelle Wright (Chief Executive, Cause4), Layla Moosavi (Fundraising consultant & trainer), and Matthew Bowcock, CBE (Arts Council England & Hazelhurst Trust). They will discuss the growing role arts fundraisers play in securing arts organisations’ futures and the skills the new generation of arts leaders and fundraisers will need to develop to deliver their organisations’ vision. The talk will be chaired by Sarah Gee (Founder, Indigo Ltd) and will be followed by a Q&A with the audience.
Doors open at 6.30 PM for a 7 PM start. The Foundling Museum's new Drawing on Childhood exhibition will be open specially for attendees from 6.30 to 7 PM.
After the talk a complimentary drink will be offered to all attendees at the New Bloomsbury Set.
The Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy Programme is led by the Arts Fundraising and Philanthropy Consortium. It delivers a collaborative series of training, traineeships, coaching, digital skills and innovative practice, to improve the perceptions of the arts as a charitable cause and enhance fundraising practice within the sector, with a key aim of encouraging leadership and entrepreneurialism.
