IoF Culture Sector Network National Conference 2019

Tuesday 12th March, 2019

LAMDA, 155 Talgarth Road, London, W14 9DA

The IoF Cultural Sector Network National Conference 2019 is a one-day conference for fundraisers within the cultural sector. Entering its fourth year, it has now established itself as the largest conference in Europe specifically aimed at arts and heritage fundraisers. Last year’s sold-out conference, which drew over 250 attendees, took place at the Barbican. We are delighted this year to be hosted at LAMDA’s new building; the jewel of their £28 million redevelopment.

Curated in partnership with Young Arts Fundraisers, the conference theme this year is ‘Learning from other sectors’. Arts and heritage fundraising can, at times, feel siloed from the wider fundraising sector. The 2019 conference will be a chance to see what we can learn from other sectors, while also celebrating the things that other sectors could learn from us.

Our sessions are divided into three tracks – Personal, Practical and Landscape – to ensure there is something to suit everybody. Click here to find out more about the sessions on offer in 2019.

We have invited fundraisers from across the charitable sector to present alongside their cultural sector peers. From psychologists to top sales negotiators we are also programming cross-disciplinary speakers from beyond fundraising, to share their skills and knowledge.

We are extremely grateful to the team of volunteers who have worked tirelessly to put on CSNNC19. You can find out more about the team here.
