Pitch n Plate
Live Crowdfunding Event
Do you love living in Narrogin and have a burning ambition or idea to improve or enliven the town? Are you inspired to get creative but need a kick-starter? We want to support your ideas, big and small.
Arts Narrogin has been busy with community engagement projects during 2019 and would like to encourage more of your ideas through our ‘Pitch n Plate’ live crowdfunding events in 2020.
How will it work? We’ll use an existing model based on an international movement called “Soup Nights”. This will aim at funding small creative projects through community meals. A group of people come together to share an affordable meal and all the income from that meal is given as a grant to support selected projects.
At the Pitch & Plate night everyone will pay for an affordable meal in return for one vote. During the course of the evening up to five individuals or groups will pitch their idea. At the conclusion of the pitches, all participants will choose which project they wish to contribute their funds to.
This will be a great fun social night with entertaining pitches to hear, delicious food (vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options available), a licensed bar and the opportunity to support a small-scale community project.
Pitchers may be individuals who currently live, work or study in Narrogin or be a Narrogin-based group; the project must deliver a discernible cultural benefit to the Narrogin community; and the pitcher must be prepared to attend the next live crowdfunding event to tell the attendees how they used the money received.
