Most current efforts in the “social design” space encourage designers to donate time and resources. Although giving one’s talent and time is certainly honorable, it is not a sustainable model. Beginning in January, Worldstudio will begin offering workshops to groups interested in learning how to fund non-client based solutions. The workshop will provide an overview of various funding models and strategies for supporting self-initiated social change work.
Topics covered will include:
• Funding models; corporate sponsorship, grants, partnerships
• Identifying and forming collaborative relationships
• How to get your ideas in front of appropriate funding sources
• Writing a project/funding plan
