Sponsorship Seminar for Manukau Arts Groups
The fourth in a series of subsidised arts management seminars in Manukau is now open for registrations.
Focusing on sponsorship for community arts groups, the seminar will be held on Thursday 28 November, 9am to 4.30pm at te
tuhi – the mark, Reeves Road, Pakuranga.
Council’s Creative Communities Funding co-ordinator Jeanine Gribbin explains that the seminar will teach participants
the secrets of sponsorship and how to give your group the competitive edge in gaining sponsorship.
“Finding sponsorship is a real problem for a lot of our artists and arts groups. It takes time and energy and requires a
certain skill to secure the funding you need, particularly as more and more organisations compete for support from the
same funding bodies.”
Presenter, Heather Newell, is a leading speaker on sponsorship in New Zealand and is the author of The Beginners Guide
to Sponsorship. Heather is a regular speaker to community organisations and has a wealth of case studies and ideas for
Heather’s company, Foresee Communications Limited, also publishes industry journals, Sponsorship Profile and Fund
