WEAVE Capacity Building LabDay

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventPublic Engagement Event


Produced in collaboration with OneDanceUK, this capacity-building event/webinar aimed at supporting UK-based Global Majority dance artists to better understand the current UK fundraising landscape and to discover how to navigate their own narrative of being a Global Majority practitioner when creating a case for support. The event enabled participants to gain an overview from the Arts Council England (ACE) on Project Grant pathways (guest speaker: Will Southworth) and hear from the Chartered Institute of Fundraising (CiOF) about their RAISE programme (guest speaker: David Mbaziira). Guest speakers also included inclusive fundraising expert and co-founder of The Women of Colour Global Network, Haseena Farid. The event aimed to support participants to build confidence and knowledge and, most importantly, join the conversation on how to weave the vital experiences, identities, and expertise of Global Majority communities into potentially successful funding bids. The event was live BSL translated and close-captioned.
