Not-for-profit, Community-Led Project seeks experienced fundraisers to help realise Tottenham Pavilion in 2021
Tottenham Pavilion is a temporary, meanwhile architectural project, due to be built and run entirely through a group of community representatives in 2021 (website update coming soon). Run entirely outdoors, we’re confident that this the type of project will be particularly useful as a post-lockdown / pandemic initiative.
Receiving international attention, a competition to design the Pavilion run in 2020 received 166 applications from all over the world. A subsequent podcast series produced by leading architectural platform, KooZ/arch, brought together leading voices of architecture and local residents and was promoted during the London Festival of Architecture Digital Festival in 2020.
To date, the project has been mainly developed by a small group of people volunteering their time and investing in the project directly. Any involvement at this stage will be voluntary – however fees can be paid, if required, once fundraising targets are achieved.
We are currently working to a budget of c.£60,000 to run the project for a minimum of 1 year, although there is scope this might be extended (dependent upon other factors). In 2019, a pilot was run which attracted funding for the Mayor of London’s Culture Seeds programme, alongside cash sponsorship from the local landlord Provewell Ltd / Spaces for Creatives.
The project will be run by a new social enterprise which is in the process of being set up. A sizeable chunk of the funds will hopefully be raised through Spacehive.com which includes the chance to pitch direct to the Mayor of London for support, as well as other sources. The remainder will need to be found from smaller pots of funding, grants, sponsorship and earned income.
We’ve all worked around funded projects before and some of us are well versed in the priorities funders often want to see – however, none of us are specialist in fundraising. We would really like to find one or a few people who could help us unpack the opportunity and tackle fundraising with more current insight.
This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone with interest and knowledge of fundraising in various settings – community gardening / sustainability, arts and cultural activity, volunteering, self-build / architecture, placemaking etc.
