Arts Council of Greater New Haven to hold crowdsourcing discussion

The Arts Council of Greater New Haven will hold a lunch time panel discussion for people interested in learning how to use crowdsourcing platforms from noon to 1 p.m. Oct. 17 at  The New Haven Institute Library, 847 Chapel St., according to a release.
"The Arts Council’s Coordinator of Community Programs, Shola Cole, has organized this panel because (relatively) new platforms like Kickstarter are amazingly effective, are getting ever-more popular, and are a great way to fund projects with a creative and community-minded approach," the release said.
The event is $15 for the public and $10 for students and Arts Council members. Attendees are welcome to bring a lunch. Refreshments and healthy snacks will be provided, the release said.
"The panel will share insights and experiences with crowdsourcing through Kickstarter, Indiegogo and GoFundMe," the release said. "Topics covered will include media format, message, identifying community need, and promoting the platform. The event will also allow for audience feedback and questions."
"The event will be moderated by New Haven-based actor, producer, writer, and social media entrepreneur, Christian Shaboo, who is currently a Dream Director with The Future Project. Panelists include Ben Berkowitz (Inside Out & ClickSeeFund), Jen Vickery (108 Monkeys & Elm City Flow), Bert Bernardi (Pantochino Productions), and others."
For more information, and to reserve a spot, contact the Arts Council at 203-772-2788 or email Shola Cole, The Arts Council of Greater New Haven’s Coordinator of Community Programs, at
(*Because the venue is not wheelchair accessible, a live feed will be broadcast in the Community Program Room on the lower level of the New Haven Free Public Library’s downtown branch, the release said.)
