Pitch n Plate
A Live Crowdfunding Event
Pitch n Plate is Narrogin’s first series of live crowdfunding events starting in 2020 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 calls 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.
All of the funds from ticket fees will be distributed to the successful pitchers while audience members enjoy a delicious 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.”

15 July 2020
A massive thank you to everyone who took part in our second edition of Pitch n Plate! The event wouldn’t have been anywhere near as spectacular without our fabulous live audience, hardworking volunteers, and passionate pitchers.
We had three exciting new projects pitched to a sold-out audience of 88 at the Narrogin Reception Centre, plus we tried our first ever livestream with the help of the crew from Euphorium!
We also heard from January’s pitches who reported back on how their projects have been progressing through the challenges of 2020: Thornton Theatre Landscaping Project, Core for Community, Moorditj Youth, Unsung Heroes.
Altogether our community raised $4030.65 to kickstart the new pitches:
- St John Ambulance Kerb Appeal
- Narrogin Have You Got Talent
- Energising the Community Garden
