Arts and Heritage Matched Crowdfunding Pilot (England & Scotland)

Nesta are currently working with arts and heritage funders, Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund to explore the potential of crowdfunding.

Two campaigns have been launched on the online giving platform “Crowdfunder” to help fund projects from individual artists in England and Heritage Organisations in the North West, South West and Scotland.

The campaigns are “Artists and the Crowd” and “Heritage and the Crowd” and each campaign has a total of £125,000 of funding available. Artists, art organisations and not for profit organisations could get up to 25% of additional funding for their projects, up to a maximum of £10,000. Projects must have inspired the community to pledge and be supported by at least five unique backers.

Further information about each campaign is available by following the links on the Nesta website
