You could help the ideas of students like Meghan Downs become reality through our new crowdfunding campaign.

Using crowdfunding, NTU is exploring exciting opportunities to support student activities and projects – from degree shows to sports clubs. The plan is to raise money, awareness and support for their great ideas, and in return supporters will be rewarded.

For example, final year BA (Hons) Decorative Arts student Meghan Downs, who specialises in ceramics, gave away some of her work in return for pledges to support her degree show.

The funding she received went towards her creative costs, such as ceramic materials, equipment, sketchbooks, and printing. It also helped with producing promotional materials and professional business cards for use at the degree show to increase awareness, and covered some of her show display costs such as creating plinths and securing work.

Head of Development and Alumni Relations Office, Tim Cobb, said: "This is the first time NTU has participated in a crowdfunding campaign. It's great to be able to see our students put forward ideas and watch both them and their projects grow."
