FTI Director of Skills & Engagement, Annie Murtagh-Monks, represented FTI in Sydney this week at a meeting of the Casting Guild of Australia then at the 'Culture Business - The Art of Fundraising' Conference.
Annie was privy to insights about changes in the landscape of fundraising, primarily about a shift away from a world in which some produce and many consume media, towards one in which everyone has a more active and participatory stake in the culture that is produced.The conference explored many topics including 'Clicktivism”, the use of online media or other methods to support a cause.
