Kickstarter to Host Workshops in London to Kickstart UK-Based Projects

By Devon Glenn 

Kickstarter today announced two new workshops to teach artists, writers, and other creative people in the UK how to raise money for their projects in the cloud.

The first workshop will be held on Friday, November 16 at the Barbican in London, which is the largest performing arts venue in Europe and the home of the London Symphony Orchestra.

Kickstarter’s Yancey Strickler will lead a basic tutorial at the free event, which is open to the public with no reservations required. Kickstarter community members including Emilie Holmes of the London-based Good & Proper Tea brew bar will also be there to share their experiences with the crowdfunding platform.

On Saturday, November 17, the team writes, “you can find us at the cozy Aubin Cinema in Shoreditch, where we’ll deep dive into structuring a campaign, what kind of rewards work best, how to spread the word, and other helpful tips. Please note seats for this event are extremely limited and RSVP is required.

The New York-based company opened its crowdfunding platform in the UK two weeks ago. Already the creators are hard at work making “the rather bland luxury underwear market interesting” and other must-see projects.
