I’ve mentioned “crowdfunding” in the past. Fundit.ie is another Irish run crowdfunding initiative with a firm focus on the creative arts ie. film, music, design etc.,
Fund it is a new all-island crowdfunding website for Ireland’s creative projects, giving everyone the power to help good ideas happen.
Fund it is designed to support greater individual giving to the creative sector; an area that up until now has been under-utilised. The approach serves to strengthen the bond between a creator and their audience which offers the potential for wider-ranging, long-term relationships.
Fund it is an initiative created by Business to Arts.
It is funded under the New Stream programme, supported by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, The Arthur Guinness Fund and via the support of a technology grant from the Department of Arts, Heritage & the Gaeltacht.
Further support was also received from the Vodafone Ireland World of Difference programme and the British Council Ireland.
Business to Arts is a not-for-profit organisation working to support resilience and transformation in the cultural sector through research, innovation and partnership.
I just funded a project involving an Irish musician I’ve liked for years – very cool!
