Training on Fundraising for the Arts & Culture in MENA
(This event has passed)

Aug 31–Sep 2, 2014
Organized by: Tamasi Performing Arts Collective
Venue: Tamasi Performing Arts Collective

As part of its effort to strengthen & increase the capacity of the independent arts sector, Tamasi identified the need for skilled fundraisers who can use a wide range of fundraising tools to mobilise resources for the independent arts sector in MENA. Tamasi, therefore, started a project in 2013 geared towards developing a core group of fundraisers for the sector through targeted training of trainers.

The training is based on the analysis and findings of a field and desk research commissioned by Tamasi in 2013. It is specifically tailored for the arts sector in MENA. The training module has been developed by =mc “The Management Centre UK” who also conducted the research in collaboration with Tamasi members.

Candidates selected for the training must commit to becoming trainers & mentors themselves in future trainings.
