crowdfunding goes cultural!

It seems every day a new crowdfunding platform seems to pop out of the ether. A new platform has indeed come up in the UK called ‘We did This’ http://wedidthis.org.uk/ which is all about helping to fund the arts. This initiative has been developed at an opportune time when the new government has significantly cut down funding to the arts in line with their austerity measures. We did this seeks to remove the middle man between artists and funders by allowing them to contact eachother directly and quickly through the internet. This is an innovative way to promote the ‘smaller artist’ to reach interested funders, who normally would go directly to large Art Institutions to make donations or support artists.

Keep any eye open for more developments in this very exciting field!
