Arts and Heritage Matched Crowdfunding Pilot

Purpose: Nesta, an innovation foundation aiming to grow new ideas to improve how the world works for everyone, is working with 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 artists and heritage organisations in the North West, South West and Scotland.  
 
Who can apply: Artists, art organisations and not for profit organisations
 
Funding: Each campaign has £125,000 of funding available. Artists, art organisations and not for profit organisations could get up to 25% of 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.
