Funding for Traveling Artists ADVICE? Not Creative Europe...
Hello, dear community,
Seeking advice on places/websites/organizations/private foundations to look for extra funding for the inaugural BodyMeld Performance Research Academy, I am starting this year in Sofia, Bulgaria.
I have funding from the National Cultural Fund, but the fund cut absolutely everything not connected to artist fees, flights and accommodation. So, I am stuck without a budget for administration, advertising, space rent, recording of the events ...etc.
For the academy, I have four visiting artists/choreographers, two from the US, one from the UK, and one from Italy. I hope to be able to apply for a different project for them to perform while here, which hopefully will cover the admin expenses.
Do you know of private or corporate funders that would be a good fit?!? Any creative fundraising ideas? Alas, I can not charge any amount of money from the students that will take part of the academy.
I'm looking to cover only about 6000 Euro in expenses and at this point asking everyone and anyone for pointers.
Please, feel free to respond personally to me as well at firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy New Year!
