How Art Trails Raise More Than Just Funds
Tilley & Paula will talk about the benefits of art trails, including how they raise much needed funds, raise the profile of charities and forge lasting relationships with local businesses.
They will also be sharing some top tips for approaching businesses, and how to keep their support long after the trail has finished.
Tilley is the founder of Making Trails, the sculpture and art trail company who create engaging art trails with local businesses, artists, schools and groups for the benefit of local communities and charities.
Enjoyed by thousands and raising large sums for charity, art trails bring people together and install positive changes in the communities they touch. Trails encourage tourism and allow locals to be tourists in their own town. They can highlight important events and areas, allow targeted footfall, boost the local economy and cultivate a sense of civic pride.
Tilley is also host of 'Up My Street', the creative placemaking podcast and loves speaking about community arts in seminars and conferences.
Paula has worked in Fundraising for the last 7 years within the homeless sector, and previously as a volunteer for Home Start. She is passionate about changing lives for the better and believes everyone deserves a safe place to call home and access to vital support services.
Paula & YMCA Burton were proud to be the chosen Charity for Tilley’s first outdoor art trail, and enjoyed working with her and the businesses who sponsored the Burton Swans. It was a particularly challenging year of launch as COVID hit and subsequent lockdowns added risk to the success of the trail. Tilley continues to be a great supporter of YMCA Burton and they have recommended Tilley to a number of other Charities following the success of the trail.
