Birmingham based craft development organisation Craftspace do some amazing things below is some information about one of their latest ventures.
Craftspace and Shelanu join the exciting world of crowdfunding
Crowdfunding is a new way for people to pool small amounts of money to back a good idea or project. Shelanu is a group of refugee and migrant women working to develop their own creative social enterprise supported by Craftspace. Craftspace invite you to look at Shelanu’s entry into the world of crowdfunding here: http://www.angelshares.com/projects/19/shelanu-collective.
Donations would help the members of this fantastic group buy a kiln and jewellery benches which will help them reach their goal. Angel Shares is a pilot initiative and any feedback on your experience of accessing and using the site would be much appreciated.
We are keen to raise awareness of this exciting venture as widely as possible, and with only 6 days to run to reach our target, if you are able to send this information out to your networks that would be most helpful!
