About this Event
Elisabetta Lazzaro, Professor of Creative and Cultural Industries Management, Business School for the Creative Arts, UCA will talk about one major strand of her current research on crowdfunding for the arts and creative industries. In the face of the dramatic shrinking of public and private funding, the arts, culture and creative industries (CCI) are increasingly relying on crowdfunding (CCCF).
Moreover, crowdfunding is relevant for its informative, promotional, co-creative and democratizing features. Yet CCCF is still a fragmented and below-potential market. Main reasons for this untapped potential include a lack of transparency and trust affected by national regulatory frameworks. Lazzaro will present and discuss main benefits and barriers of CCCF for CCI organisations and professionals. She will also critically analyse and compare policy aspects that may enhance CCCF benefits and limit its barriers and risks in its two major markets, namely the United States and Europe.
