The ACF is back on the road in February and March, with a series of events in Perth and Adelaide designed for artists and arts organisations to make the most of our fundraising platform. Come along and meet ACF Manager Syrie Payne, who will take you through all you need to know about fundraising for your art […]
You could be eligible for up to $10,000 for artists and up to $25,000 or $50,000 for arts organisations through Creative Partnerships Australia’s matched funding programs.
PLUS1 is our matched funding program for not-for-profit arts and cultural organisations.
Alex Cubis is an Australian actor, writer and producer who used the ACF and Fractured Atlas (USA fundraising platform) to raise funds for his campaign, ROCKETMAN. He is currently developing a film, play and TV show which will premiere on Channel 7. We talked to Alex about the nuances between fundraising in Australia compared to the United States.
In 2018, we surveyed those who had donated to the ACF from that year. The results were surprising! We’ve painted a picture of who the average donor is and her name is Joanne Donor.
These campaigns have let us know that since fundraising on the ACF they have won an award, been nominated, been selected for a festival, and/or won a competition!
As an artist or an arts producer, you know what it’s like to do everything on a shoestring – including tying your shoes with actual string because you know what? It gets the job done and it’s extremely affordable. But when it comes to marketing there’s a fine line between doing it on the cheap and doing your project a disservice.
It’s a question that has troubled armies, governments, moguls, arts practitioners and producers for millennia. Do I need a strategy? What kind of strategy? And while we’re on the topic, what is a strategy? While the details vary hugely depending on whether you’re planning a land war or a short film there are some constant principles you can apply.
Easiest question ever, you might think. My marketing budget is literally zero, or as close to it as I can manage. Question answered, the problem solved. However, the truth is that you will definitely spend something on your marketing.
When you’re in the creative throes of making art, the audience is rarely topmost in your mind. Whether it’s the work itself as creation or response, the role it plays in your community or your portfolio thinking about finding an eventual audience can be equal parts intimidating and inspiring.
