Michelle Wright offers some answers to the question; ‘with fundraising in the UK currently suffering from an image problem, how can we find the next generation of top arts fundraisers?’
Why is it that our arts organisations are finding it so difficult to recruit to the top? The arts sector is vibrant and colourful. It’s a sector where you can not only make a difference, but also see real tangible change happen. And if you’re in charge of raising the income needed to realise a vision then you’re a pretty valuable resource. Excellent fundraisers can have stellar careers, and leadership of income generation is both highly visible and rewarding.
