Wishberry's Workshop at Thespo 17 on Crowdfunding for Theatre Artists

Posted on 4 December, 2015 by Team Wishberry

blog Wishberry is India’s most successful crowdfunding platform for creative projects like films, music and theatre. We are proud to partner with Thespo 17 and we are excited to meet you all at the festival! So far over 250 projects have raised more than Rs. 5 crores using Wishberry.  11,000 backers and supporters of arts and culture have funded these projects. Yours could be the next in line.

But, what is crowdfunding and why do theatre groups need it?

One answer – To dream big and bigger than that! Crowdfunding is all about going out and sharing your project idea with people on the internet and asking them to fund it, so you go ahead and make it happen! Theatre groups all over the world just have one struggle – money! And we are here to solve it. By crowdfunding your plays, you:
  • Get likeminded people to fund your idea and get them on board as patrons, who can help you in the future too
  • You can go ahead and dream big, make that Broadway show, no need to think of cutting costs and getting favors for free!
In fact, even Thespo 17 has crowdfunded successfully on Wishberry too! Quasar Thakore Padamsee (co-founder and artistice director of Thespo) says, “We have been raising funds through donations for the past few years, but the pool of donors we were reaching was very small. Wishberry allowed us to reach out to a larger pool, and also made it easier for funders to contribute”. We’ll be telling you how they did it successfully and much more. So, don’t miss!
