As part of Dance UK’s Business of Dance training programme, Agile Fundraising is a new programme designed to unmask techniques to attract individual donors and help you become more confident in raising funds. The programme includes six training sessions over 10 months plus an extra, final session to pitch for up to £1,000 (Dragon’s Den-style) to a panel of wealthy donors. Each session includes input and advice from Fern Potter, Head of Development & Strategy for Dance UK, ADAD and Youth Dance England.
The Fit for Purpose – Setting out your Fundraising Strategy / Getting Started session is led by John Nicholls, founder of Arts Quarter with over 25 years’ experience working within the arts, charitable communities and creative industries in the UK and abroad. Guest panel member is Charlotte Semlyen, Arts Consultant and former Business and Development Director of South East Dance.
