Fundraising for the future: Catalyst success for national craft consortium
A consortium of five nationally acclaimed organisations working in the field of contemporary craft and design have successfully bid for £150,000 from Arts Council England’s Catalyst Arts: building fundraising capacity scheme.
The Catalyst Crafts Consortium consists of Bluecoat Display Centre, Liverpool; Craftspace, Birmingham; Devon Guild, Bovey Tracey; Manchester Craft & Design Centre; and Smiths Row, Bury St Edmunds.
The leaders of these organisations have a history of working collaboratively and this funding will enable them to join forces again to develop the case for support and devise key messages to attract donors to invest in the craft sector. The award will also enable them to test a range of different approaches to fundraising including crowd-funding and membership schemes.
