Pedro is planning publishing a music magazine to cover small jazz bands from all Andalusia. He has already thought of the layout, he has programmed his first interviews and even decided which songs will be included in the CD part of the magazine. He just misses a small thing: money to publish it.
Maria has heard about Pedro’s project, and she is upset because there are so many interesting projects that she likes that will never go out because of the lack of money. She loves jazz and she would love to see that magazine published. But, what would happen if there would be three hundred people thinking as Maria?
Collective funding, known as crowdfunding in its digital version, looks to establish a way of doing contributions to get creators money to finance their ideas without going to the traditional path of the bank loan. This is a person to person relation, with no economic interests, that opens the door for new open collaboration relationships.
Next 10th of March, Saturday, from 11 am, Colbrain, one of the first Andalusian crowdfunding platforms, will be offering a workshop in Nido where the keys of collective funding will be analysed (workshop will be taught in Spanish, but questions in English are welcome, if you understand Spanish better than you speak it).
Colbrain’s goal is to benefit, through economic resources, projects that promote social transformation, cooperation, mutual benefits and horizontality, moving towards sustained models and social innovation.
If you are interested in collective funding or you have a project that could benefit from crowdfunding, join the workshop (totally free and limited seats):
