About Christina Poulton Creative

I am an arts trainer and consultant and have worked for arts organisations and with individual artists across the UK, since Linkin Park were first topping the charts. I love working with people on their finance, policies, fundraising, organisational development and procedures – all the things that underpin the arts and allow amazing projects to happen. My fundraising experience covers the spectrum from raising small pots of money for community projects through to leading on fundraising strategy and successful multi year large-scale bids for Arts Council National Portfolio Organisations. My training is informed by extensive, current experience.

*The original price for this online course was £38.32. It has been subsidised by £28.32 per person via Lyrici Arts, taking the price to £10 per person. This subsidy is only applicable to creatives in Medway.
