More projects realised, more sponsors gained, more money raised – crowdfunding is very much on the rise.

Symposium «Crowdfunding in culture»
Pro Helvetia and the Federal Office for Culture jointly organised a symposium on crowdfunding in culture on June 2 at Stadtmuseum Aarau. Results of the study were compared to real-life cases from Switzerland and abroad. In addition, a panel discussion explored the question of what forms of cooperation between public, private and crowdfunding-based cultural promotion are the most promising for the future.
