Everything is Pozible

Griffith has supported a number of crowdfunded projects to successfully reach their goals this year, including Barellan Beer. 

Now Western Riverina Arts want to help you to realise your own dream project.

"Pozible is an Australian website which has a great reputation for supporting a wide variety of endeavours," said Derek Motion, Regional Arts Development Officer at Western Riverina Arts.

Crowdfunding is an online phenomenon where you attract lots of little donations from a big group of people. "This month Pozible have seen pledges to the tune of a record $2429 per hour, which shows there is a community who want to help make dreams into realities."

Pozible ambassador Suzanne Nguyen will lead an introductory workshop at The Brett Naseby Gallery on Thursday that will discuss how to seek crowdfunding for your own art and community-based projects.

Ms Nguyen is no stranger to Griffith, having run an exhibition at the Griffith Regional Art Gallery earlier this year. Joining her will be Neil Bull, who raised over $50,000 to fund a local project to protect an endangered Australasian bird, see www.pozible.com/project/186259

The Western Riverina Arts crowdfunding workshop will start at 6pm on Thursday, 27 November 2014. Light refreshments will be provided on the evening, please register your interest at www.eventbrite.com.au/e/crowdfunding-workshop-griffith-tickets-7404873175
