We're stoked to partner up with our good mates at CoCA to lay down the 101 on Aotearoa's only crowdfunding platform dedicated to getting art off the ground. We'll cover funding targets, storytelling, building a community, making the ask, and campaign strategies to get your arts project funded.
Leading the charge: Adam Hayward, Boosted Mentor
Having moved to New Zealand from Wales in 2000 I have spent the last 15 years running a highly successful dance and performance festival as well as a myriad of other dance projects. I am now running my own production agency focusing on the process of creation as opposed to the product giving time and space to this without the barrier of either and taking the form initially of a series of international process based exchange residencies with the working title 'space to fail'. I am also involved in the creation of a new purpose built space for dance, performance and circus as part of the rebuild of Christchurch post earthquake. Current employment includes contracting to the YMCA Christchurch to develop and run a black box performance venue and associated studios and teaching event management at ARA institute.
