Spacehive: Have you ever looked at a nearby green space and thought it could be livened up? Or maybe you’ve got an idea to improve a publicly used building or to install some public art. Perhaps your ideas are even wackier, and could create an attraction that’s the envy of the world. You’re not alone. Many people are using crowdfunding to make their ideas happen.

From putting on street festivals to building community centres, the possibilities are endless. Crowdfunding has been used to raise the profile of projects, gather public support, and raise the money that’s needed to make an idea happen.
