Event description

Description

The annual Institute of Fundraising Cultural Sector Network Conference 2020 is a one-day conference for fundraisers within the cultural sector, curated in partnership with Young Arts Fundraisers. We're grateful to Spektrix, which once again has generously agreed to be our Headline Sponsor. Entering its fifth year, it has now established itself as the largest conference in Europe specifically aimed at arts and heritage fundraisers. Last year’s sold-out conference drew nearly 300 attendees, and we expect to grow again this year.

New this year is a pre-conference meetup the night before, at Camden's Roundhouse. Join delegates and speakers for a relaxed evening of conversation, networking and Talkaoke - a live pop-up talk show where anyone can sit down and air their views and opinions about fundraising and this year's conference theme Uncharted Waters around the table of chat. Find out more and register here. We're grateful to Spektrix and Tessitura Network for making this session possible.

Responding to our Conference theme – Uncharted Waters – we have a roster of excellent speakers from both within and outside of the arts, exploring what it means to be a cultural sector fundraiser in uncertain times. These include fundraising in the regions, moving into leadership, prospecting for major donors and developing legacy fundraising programmes. At the landscape level, we have sessions on the climate crisis, diminishing funding, generational change, greater awakening about unconscious bias, and our changing relationship with the rest of the World.

You can choose break out sessions when you book, and full details of the programme are available on the Conference website here. Break out sessions will be split into these three categories

1. PORTRAIT This track will teach delegates how to swim rather than sink when wading in uncharted waters. Sessions will cover how to improve personal health, wellbeing and work-life balance, and how to master ‘captaining your own ship’. We are looking for sessions that are honest and explore what to do when things go wrong, as well as right.

2. LANDSCAPE This track will look at how you navigate the shifting tides of fundraising. Sessions will cover emerging trends and approaches across all areas of giving and question how we diversify where our support comes from.

3. PRACTICAL This track will give delegates the tools they need to build a bigger boat. Sessions will cover practical and applicable fundraising skills, tools and methods.

Reflecting our partnership with Young Arts Fundraisers and Arts Council England, sessions throughout the programme are designed with early career, regionally based and solus fundraisers in mind.
