EU initiative making crowdfunding accessible for creative professionals and cultural organisations

IDEA Consult together with its consortium partners ECN (European Crowdfunding Network) and Ecorys are running a pilot project on Crowdfunding for the cultural and creative sectors (CCS) on behalf of the European Commission-DG EAC.
The aim of the project is to research the current uptake of crowdfunding to support cultural and creative actors, share insights with CCS actors, policy makers and crowdfunding platforms about the use and potential impact of crowdfunding, share inspiring examples of how crowdfunding is used to leverage CCS practices. 
In the online platform you can find practical information on what crowdfunding is, its different models, VAT and costs, as well as an interactive tool where crowdfunding platforms can be viewed and compared. Moreover, an interactive map for platforms in Europe that host crowdfunding campaigns for cultural and creative projects. The map is a work-in-progress and will be updated regularly. 
On top of this a ‘News and Event’ page covers recent updates and events on crowdfunding, whereas the ‘Resources’ page aggregates useful links, reports and publications.
