In order to answer this question we have launched the following 4 surveys.

Why take the surveys?

Your views and experiences will directly...

...help us build this Crowdfunding4Culture website.

We have the ambition to become a European wide information hub for anyone who wants to learn more about:

  • what crowdfunding might bring to cultural and creative organizations,
  • what the possible crowdfunding models and platforms are and how to select the right one, 
  • how other cultural and creative professionals have handled their crowdfunding campaigns,
  • what type of finance can be raised through crowdfunding.

...help the European Commission to better understand what the potential of crowdfunding is,

or the development of cultural and creative activities and evaluate possible policy actions, based on the research results of this study.

In the coming weeks we also want to survey policy makers, crowdfunding platforms and backers about their experiences with crowdfunding for culture. Follow us on Twitter to hear about the launch of those specific surveys!

Crowdfunding4Culture is part of the European funded project ‘Crowdfunding for the cultural and creative sectors: kick-starting the cultural economy’.

How many projects have been crowdfunded in the arts, museums, libraries, festivals or in design, music, film, gaming, heritage, literature, fashion, etc?   We ask crowdfunding platforms to share their stats with us.
