Recently Sues, the Abbey Museum Marketing and Sponsorship Manager, and I were invited to give a talk at a webinar (online seminar) being hosted by Museum & Gallery Services Qld, the peak body for museums and galleries in Queensland. The webinar was being produced for regional art galleries, museums, plus other tourism and affiliated businesses and organizations in central and outback Queensland.
The subject of our presentation was for our recent successful ‘Pozible’ Crowdfunding Project – ‘Bringing Back 16th Century Beauty’ in which we raised over $3000 towards the conservation of one of our medieval stained glass windows.
Our Powerpoint presentation covered all aspects of our project from the marketing strategy, photos and memes (interesting Facebook photos), to daily tracking and, of course, communicating and thanking all our wonderful supporters.
Our audience included people from Qantas Founders Museum, Central Highlands Regional Council, Longreach Regional Council, Emerald Art Gallery, Winton District Historical Society and Museum, and the Australian Stockman’s Hall of Fame just to name a few.
We both felt very privileged to be in the company of such iconic Australian tourism destinations and were very honoured to be able to show our outback and regional counterparts another fun avenue to create some much needed funding.
We were thrilled to represent the Abbey Museum of Art & Archaeology at this, our inaugural crowdfunding webinar presentation!
