Arts Business Symposium @ Kings Place

This event slipped through the net when I was writing the newsletter this week. It's just on our doorstep, and is particularly topical given the financial instability of many arts organisations today. See you there?

Subsidy Junkies?
A day of practical survival strategies for arts fundraising
Friday 26th March at Kings Place

How can the arts sector build and sustain income when faced with public spending cuts?
This one day symposium brings together fundraising and development professionals working in the arts and cultural sectors to explore this changing landscape, learn practical survival strategies, seek out opportunities and generate new ideas to stay financially healthy.

The day will include panel discussions looking at different business models in the arts and getting boards engaged with fundraising along with interactive workshops on pitching to business, major gifts ("making the ask") and the importance of looking after your supporters ("donor care").

Peter Aspden - Financial Times
