As news of Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak’s £1.57bn arts and culture rescue package came through late last Sunday night, it was a good way to end the weekend… and enabled me to wake up on Monday morning much more optimistic about the future of the UK arts sector than I had been previously. But hold back on the knight to the rescue fantasy. I have some concerns.
Thinking beyond Rishi’s Riches: how to convince your boss you should attend the National Arts Fundraising School
Hurrah! The recent arts funding announcement from the government is good news. It will help. Maybe now is the time to persuade your boss that you can help your organisation build for the longer term.
In these Coronaviral times when you listen to the or watch the news it’s all about death- despite the fact that most people, even those who are infected, recover. Why are we so focused on death?

So you’re interested in coming on the National Arts Fundraising School and joining our elite Alumni of arts fundraisers at the top of their game… fantastic, we’d love to see you there. But just in case you need further convincing, here are 10 things you’ll personally get from the School.
Maybe the challenges you face are more regarding your own questions about the National Arts Fundraising School. Below we tackle some of the common ones.
