“Fundraising is friend-raising!”

Our December #MonthlyMeet was led by arts fundraiser Miriam Sherwood, who shared practical advice on accessing grant funding for arts and charity projects.

Miriam has put together a fantastic pdf responding to questions from attendees, including guidance on finding funders relevant to your project, suggestions of specific funders and advice on writing funding applications.

We’re sure anyone on the hunt for funding will find it useful – take a look here.

Refugee Week & Platforma Monthly Meets are free, friendly online meet-ups on the first Thursday of every month, for people interested in arts, culture and social change to share learning and expand their networks.

We’re holding a special session in Arabic on Thursday 17 December, which will be about Refugee Week and how to get involved (see the Eventbrite page for more info and to book).

We’ll then take a break for January and will be back with our next Monthly Meet on Thursday 4 February. Keep an eye on the Refugee Week newsletter, website or social media channels for details of the topic and how to book, and do send us your suggestions of themes for future sessions.
