Interview with Kleitia Zeqo, a consultant on the Study Crowdfunding4Culture

Thousands of creative professionals and cultural organisations across Europe have used crowdfunding to raise money for their projects. However, research shows that lack of awareness and understanding of crowdfunding are among the main reasons why actors in the cultural and creative sectors (CCS) do not make use of this tool. In order to overcome this information gap, Crowdfunding4Culture has been launched with the aim of bringing crowdfunding closer to CCS.

We sat down with Kleitia Zeqo, a consultant for the study Crowdfunding4Culture, a EU funded pilot initiative whose aim is to make crowdfunding more accessible to creative professional and cultural organisation.
