HOLD UP – SAY WHAT?!
In case you’ve been out of the loop of Thundafund’s latest and greatest happening – Thundafund & the South African Department of Arts and Culture have partnered up to bring you the ‘Crowdfunding Creative Economy Development Project’ for 2015.
This is a drive to promote & incentivise crowdfunding as a tool for empowerment for all of South Africa’s creatives & change makers to raise the funding that they need & to build a crowd around their idea for the future.
Thundafund is opening itself up for applications from creatives and innovators who will fall under the Department of Arts and Cultures mandate of influence :
“The project activities must be aligned to the Department of Art’s and Culture’s role in development and promotion as well as the broad government imperatives of skills development, job creation, empowerment and sustainability.”
To do so please apply online here.
