Matched Crowdfunding six months on
Skip to content

Last year we worked with Arts Council England, Heritage Lottery Fund and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) to run The Artist+ the Crowd and the Heritage+ the Crowd Matched Crowdfunding Pilot funds.

The pilot ran from September 2016 until October 2017 and saw arts and heritage projects raising money for a diverse range of projects from plays and art exhibitions, to launching new apps and preserving heritage sites.

Six months after the crowdfunding campaigns had wrapped up, we carried out a survey to gauge the longer term impacts of the pilot, the results of which we have highlighted in a blog piece. We have also carried out interviews to produce six case studies looking at specific longer term benefits and challenges of the crowdfunding experience for individual projects.
