Free Crowdfunding Workshop

Friday January 27th 10am – 4.30pm
Room 608/609 – ABS
Robert Gordon University
Admission FREE, booking essential.

Crowdfunding is a modern, online and interactive way to raise funds directly from the public – or the Crowd – for your projects and activities. With the advent of Crowdfunding we can now turn our audiences into supporters and funders, by collecting multiple small donations online and offering unique incentives to encourage giving, not only can you raise funds to get your project of the ground but you can start to build a ‘buzz’ around it before hand.

Organised by GANE (Growing Audiences North East) and sponsored by RGU: Art & Heritage Collections, this workshop is open to students and staff. For more information and to register go to http://www.ganeaudiences.co.uk/training/training-opportunities/92-crowdfunding-workshop

Art and Heritage Collections Exhibition

Georgina Scott Sutherland Library Exhibition Space

9th January to 18th March 2012

Recent Work by graduates of Gray’s School of Art and Scott Sutherland School of Architecture, RGU.

Every year Art & Heritage Collections acquires examples of work by the graduates of Gray’s and Scott Sutherland’s.  We visit the Degree Shows, and select a winning student from each course, to whom we award a ‘purchase prize’ which enables us to collect some work completed for the Degree examinations.  Supplementary work is also sometimes collected.

In this way, we are protecting the best work by students, developing a material record of the teaching and study at the Schools, and acknowledging the students’ achievements.  Objects we collect range from traditional painting and prints to conceptual pieces, designs for products to be made in industry, ceramics, photography, graphic and digital design, and of course, architectural projects.  This collection is unique in Scotland, and no equivalent institutions methodically collect the best of their output, as we do.
