Crowd Funding

From Standing Room Only, 12:40 pm on 16 February 2014

More and more artists are turning to crowd funding to get their creative endeavour funded without having to go cap in hand to the usual sources of money. Well, that's if yours is among the projects that catch the public's imagination. Many projects fail to reach their target, but for those that make it, it's worth all the hard work that goes into launching a successful campaign. We hear from two of New Zealand's foremost crowd-funding organisations, the Arts Council's Boosted (Mark Michel) and New Zealand's first crowd-funding platform PledgeMe (Anna Guenther).
