With the Platinum Pias Awards one week away (Monday, March 21, 6:30pm at DCTV, 87 Layfayette) a lot of folks are talking about Funding For Artists, the new initiative from Lights Camera Read that addresses the issue of artists needing funding for their work and to live. The issue is addressed by teaching artists to fundraise, be more entrepreneurial and to create opportunities. Why is it creating a buzz? Because at the Platinum Pias, the start of Part II of the documentary "Celebrity Entrepreneurship: Youth Empowerment" will be filmed in the VIP room during the reception. And the topic will be "Funding For Artists."
The attendees of the Platinum Pias Awards coming on March 21 reads like a Who's Who of the nonprofit world and these individuals will be giving their expert opinions not only on Funding For Artists but on raising funds in general. Who better to hear from than those who are actually doing funding on a regular basis?!
