Welcome to the Create NSW Creating New Income: a toolkit to support creative practice. Here you’ll find guides and resources to help generate revenue for your creative practice. The Toolkit is tailored to creative practitioners and small to medium organisations.
We’ve taken a “how to” approach to each topic, showing the steps needed to grow and develop income streams from sources such as philanthropy, sponsorship, crowdfunding and new products.
Individual guides contain links to related information throughout the Toolkit and case studies of success from around NSW. Alongside each of our guides you’ll find links to further resources sourced from around the web to help kick-start your fundraising efforts.
Throughout the Toolkit you will find guides on a range of topics to inform and assist your revenue raising practices. These short clear guides can be dipped into as needed. The Toolkit is not designed to be read cover-to-cover.
Download the full Toolkit or dip into the individual guides that relate to your area of interest.
