Film London, in partnership with Lighthouse and Forma, is delighted to have this week secured funding as part of Arts Council England’s Catalyst: Building Fundraising Capacity Scheme.
Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network (FLAMIN) will work as part of a consortia, led by Brighton-based, Lighthouse, which also includes London-based Forma Arts and Media, to develop new and innovative ways of building fundraising capacity within each of the respective organisations.
The consortia is one of 62 successful applications to the £7 million Catalyst Arts: building fundraising capacity scheme, which supports a wide range of organisations working across different art forms, including music, theatre and combined arts. This fund is part of the £110 million Catalyst project to boost philanthropy by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF).
The Catalyst scheme is designed to help organisations to address both shared and individual fundraising development needs of consortia members and identify and develop effective fundraising methods that have a long-term impact on the business plan of each organisation.
Lighthouse is a digital culture agency, which supports artists and film-makers, through exhibitions, conferences, talks, and education programmes, both in their own venue in Brighton, and internationally.
Established in 2002, Forma is one of Europe’s leading creative producing agencies, working with British and international artists to develop and deliver new contemporary, cross art form productions across the world.
Film London is very much looking forward to working with its consortia partners Lighthouse and Forma on this exciting new project to further increase its support around artists’ moving image practice in the UK.
