Artists are creating amazing things on Crowdfunder

Arts the Crowd = making ideas happen

Making great arts ideas happen on Crowdfunder

Crowdfunder is the perfect tool to connect great arts ideas with people who share their vision and have the drive to make it happen.

At the heart of each project is an amazing story, a unique idea and a group of people who strive to make the world a more creative place.

Be it dance or theatre, music or painting, crowdfunding has the extraordinary potential to connect individuals, communities, charities and businesses to share and appreciate artistic talents.

And there's well over £2million of extra funding available on top, with up to an additional £125,000 available for great arts ideas on Crowdfunder.

So what's yours?

By crowdfunding money from the general public it enabled us to create a community of backers invested in making our idea happen.
