Event Details

Money Talks is a series of four free, hands-on events across Yorkshire, designed to open up the conversation about new forms of finance for the arts. Whether you’re an artist, writer, performer, designer, producer, promoter, publisher or innovator, the current economic climate can make the business of creativity even more challenging.

At Money Talks - happening in Leeds, Sheffield, York and Hull - you’ll hear from a range of speakers from across the creative industries who will cut through the noise to assess the different funding options for businesses across cultural sectors. Meet your peers in fields as diverse as craft, games design, drama, web design, dance and the full range of visual arts and discuss the challenges and opportunities for creative businesses in Yorkshire, for 2013 and beyond. Money Talks has been instigated by Creative Industry Finance, an Arts Council England programme to support creative businesses.

MADE NORTH and Yorkshire Artspace are delighted to be hosting Money Talks in Sheffield with Arts Council England, to bring you an interesting few hours of talks and discussion around raising finance for your projects and initiatives  Areas covered will include crowd funding in addition to the ACE creative industry finance scheme and making collaborative projects happen.
Speakers include Chris Sellars, Director of Mackenzie Spencer, who will be talking about the merits of crowd funding and explaining how it can be applied to your business ventures.

Mary-Alice Stack from Arts Council England will be discussing how their Creative Industry Finance scheme will work and how you can access their support of up to 12 hours mentoring and loan funds of between £5000 and £25000.
