A number of charitable arts organisations are working on innovative ways of fundraising to cover the costs of their activities in the present economic climate. GFEST – Gaywise FESTival is currently looking to focus on individual donors to support some of this year’s festival activities. GFEST is an annual event in London’s LGBT calendar in November and will be announcing the exciting 2010 festival line-up soon. WISE THOUGHTS is the arts charity that organises GFEST.
The organisers are inviting arts donors to join the Special Friend Scheme. The Special Friend donors are to get an unrivalled access to events, parties and the festival organisers and GFEST artists themselves during the festival period. GFEST 2010 will take place in venues across London from 8 to 21 November.
Scott Cole of the GFEST donation scheme said, “We hope to continue to attract prominent LGBT members donating generously to ensure that GFEST becomes an even stronger platform for rarely supported LGBT arts and artists.”
The festival’s artistic director Niranjan Kamatkar added, “Since funding for the arts now is facing uncertainty more than ever, it is vitally important that we receive the continuing sponsorships, and help from donotion plans such as Special Friends of GFEST to help ensure the success and longevity of the festival.”More info on GFEST – Gaywise FESTival (GFEST in short) web: http://www.gaywisefestival.org.uk GFEST Artistic Director: Niranjan Kamatkar
