Park Sessions: Getting Over Fundraising Fears with Dorcas Morgan & Tania Dunn

Park Sessions Programme Curator: Holly Adomah Thompson

Due to the nationwide lockdown imposed from 6 January 2021, we have taken the decision to postpone all scheduled Park Sessions events. New dates will be announced once restrictions are eased and bookers will be contacted at that time by our box office team to update their booking. We hope to see all bookers when new dates are announced, but alternatively, bookers can cancel their booking by calling the box office on 020 7870 6876.

Ever been intimidated at the thought of writing an Arts Council Application? Then this masterclass with two of the best minds in the business will help you set out on the path to fundraising success.

Park Theatre’s Outgoing Development Director Dorcas Morgan has worked in fundraising & development for over 15 years and is joined in this masterclass by Park Theatre’s incoming Development Director, Tania Dunn, currently at the Young Vic, but who is taking over fundraising at Park Theatre from Jan 2021.

Dorcas and Tania will give you the rundown on firming up your finances in the arts sector. Giving you a taste from their fundraising encyclopedias on how to write a strong application, managing galas and fundraising events and donor stewardship.

Bring all of your quick-fire questions on budgets, applications, donors and more.
