Arts Narrogin supports bright ideas
Narrogin will experience its first live crowdfunding event on Wednesday, 22 January thanks to an initiative by local cultural non-for-profit, Arts Narrogin.
Using a fundraising model that has proved successful in a variety of locations from the USA to the UK to Kalgoorlie, Arts Narrogin has called upon community members and organisations to come forward with their ideas to enliven the town.
A few of those ideas will be selected and the proposers invited to pitch them to an audience of locals who will vote for the idea they like the most.
The project, which has been called Pitch n Plate, will be held at the Narrogin Bowling Club and tickets are now on sale via trybooking.com/BHIKB or in person at Arts SPACE. All of the ticket fee of $15 will go into the pot to be distributed to the successful pitchers while audience members enjoy a delicious quiche and salads supper supplied by Arts Narrogin. Drinks will be available to purchase from the bar and there will be ample time to socialize.
“We want to encourage innovative and creative thinkers who have an idea to improve the liveability of Narrogin,” Arts Narrogin fundraising coordinator, Deborah Hughes-Owen said. “Sometimes big projects grow from a small seed and even the tiniest change can enrich our lives and brighten our days.”
