what’s included



Private Sector opportunities for regional artists and arts organisations presented by James Boyd from Creative Australia in partnership with Creative Corner.

The course will provide a complete overview of private sector revenue opportunities appropriate for individual regional artists and arts organisations. It will outline national and local trends; differences between sponsorship and philanthropy; what it means to be fundraising ready; how to engage your board in fundraising; and the theory and practice of sponsorship and philanthropy including contemporary arts fundraising strategies like crowdfunding, donor circles and grants from trusts & private foundations.

The course will explain how to find, build, and retain relationships to grow long term private sector support using best practice stewardship. It will also explore the advantages and opportunities of using the Australian Cultural Fund, which offers all artists and small arts groups the ability to provide supporters tax deductibility.

The course is appropriate for:

  • Individual artists, arts leaders and professionals, and board members of arts organisations keen to diversify revenue streams.

  • The course will be tailored to regional participants and include a one hour workshop on Southwest WA support solutions.
