To be honest with you I haven’t done any work on funding applications. I’m one of three organisers, and each of us has a distinct role. I’m the Marketing Manager and the other two are the Festival Director and the Producer. The Producer is the one who wrote the bids, but a major part of getting funding was showing how the event would integrate with the local community, resulting in cultural development and employment opportunities.
That’s brilliant – you mentioned before about getting support from local businesses… What sort of businesses did you approach? Did they help out just with funding or did you get any other support?
