How to talk to funders is a working conference which will bring together black and minority ethnic (BME) leaders, managers, founders, activists and project managers all across the UK, to spend a day with a range of funders such as Big Lottery, Power To Change, JRT, Paul Hamlyn, UKRI and Calouste Gulbenkian.
Through a mix of keynote, panel and round table discussions, participants will have the opportunity to network with their peers and funders and their staff. And, through 1-2-1 surgeries, get direct feedback and guidance on their own project proposals.
Your travel costs and any reasonable access/support costs that you need will be covered, and the conference will take place in either London or Birmingham on Monday 30th March.
The whole day is intended to highlight the value and perspectives of BME-led projects and organisations.
