In this class, we'll discuss your ideas for possible events, which you've been thinking about over the past week, then we'll look more closely at funding options for community literary events.
For events that engage a community, options include:
* Creative New Zealand creative communities grants
* Local city council grants for arts and culture

In New Zealand, the two main options for arts projects are:
Pledgeme - https://www.pledgeme.co.nz
Boosted - http://www.boosted.org.nz
We'll look at these more closely - the differences and similarities between them - as well as some successful campaigns and what made them successful
