Northern Sky - Festevet

Two LMC staff members are heading up to Falun in the north of Sweden this week to attend the Festevet Project meeting relating to the key theme: Sponsorship and Entrepreneurship Festivals.
 
This is an interesting chance to learn from a professional organisation the art of funding a festival project by attracting alternative finances. The staff will take part in a real life sponsorship and pitching exercise to hone their skills and see if an LMC festival is an investible prospect. 

The Project is a Leonardo funded partnership with 8 partners from across the EU. Each partner has hosted one meeting and LMC will host the final meeting in June 2014 when there will be a celebration event with all partners present. The results of the partnership project will be a set of helpful tips, guidelines and practical tools for any vocational training organisation wishing to embark on their own festival or event.

To find out more about this project go to www.festevet.org or check out the links on the blog. JL
