Funding: Crowd Funding

A recent lecture at Future Everything (Arts Council RFO) included more places where crowd sourcing funding is being used. Here are some of the emerging and established online arts funding sites and examples of the schemes. Art projects are showcased for funding by the public, and receive online sponsorship/pledges from the public to secure funding (known as crowd funding). A useful development in online networking for supporting of the arts:
