The first step of our research on crowdfunding was to get insights into how creative workers experience crowdfunding, the challenges and opportunities they face.

We interviewed 8 people who have already used crowdfunding as a way to finance their projects. The interviewees are working/activating in arts/artists and creatives/people with artistic background (filmmaking, performing arts, social entrepreneurship, publishing etc).

The aim of the interviews is to give voice to a wide range of experiences and opinions about crowdfunding, which we hope is useful and informative for prospective campaigners.

Interviews were taken face-to-face or over the phone during the period December 2013 – January 2014.
