Tyneside Crowd is a new Crowdfunding platform where people can collaborate on creative and innovative projects to improve and celebrate the places where they live, work and study. Through this initiative we want to continue a proud legacy of industry and entrepreneurship that goes back to Roman times, through the industrial revolution, and to the present day. We want to support local people to come up with projects which provide solutions to the challenges they face in their local area or to build on new opportunities. From music festivals to art installations, guerrilla gardening to pop up markets, if you have an idea to make your place even better, we want to hear from you. As part of this programme we are running a number of workshops to help you develop your projects and ideas. Projects that show local support are eligible to attract additional funding of up to £5,000 from Tyneside Crowd partners. See the below tab on the 'Process - How to get involved' for more information.
