A free one-day workshop for arts, cultural and community groups keen to improve their financial stability.

This day is organised and provided by Create Berwick in partnership with the National Arts Fundraising School.

About the Workshop:

This day is the perfect way to learn the skills you need to secure cash for you cause- from writing powerful proposals to setting up a credible crowdfunder and from asking high net worth individuals for support to clinching that sponsorship deal with a company. Whether you need £500 for your next small project or £5M to refurb your whole building this is a fabulous opportunity.
