So, you want to make some theatre, but you need money to do it. Â So where does this money come from?
Let’s say that you’re in Canada, and you’ve applied for CAC grants, but you haven’t gotten them. Â You’ve held some fundraising events, but you haven’t come close to what you need. Â What do you do? Â How do you raise the funds to actually put up the show?
Kris Joseph wrote an excellent blog post on using IndieGoGo as a fundraising source (which you can read here), but I don’t think that one should bank on a pitch on a fundraising site like this to generate a ton of cash (sure it might be possible, but it shouldn’t be your only source of revenue).
How do you raise funds for theatre projects? Â What has worked for you in the past?
