Last night, I attended a fun event all about Kickstarter, put on by Arts for Colorado (AFC) and WESTAF (Western States Arts Federation) at Deer Pile in Denver. I’ve never personally launched a Kickstarter (considered it for Noiselace, but instead built an online store), have supported many local artists in their campaigns, been a follower of Kickstarter for years and was definitely interested in learning more. Especially after potato salad happened this week.
The speakers included 2 local individuals, Brigid and Robert, who each had successful campaigns and Stephanie Pereira, Kickstarter’s International & Civic Partnerships Lead. There was so much great information that I took over 4 pages of notes…I’m dead serious! Stephanie rattled off so many amazing statistics, I couldn’t write them down fast enough. Both Brigid and Robert provided tips based on their experiences that kept the audience asking questions all night long.
I couldn’t keep all of this knowledge to myself, so I decided to share the wealth over on Arts for Colorado’s blog. Read all of the great tips from Brigid and Robert and I guarantee you’ll learn a bit more about Kickstarter than you knew before (including why some guy was allowed to create a Kickstarter for potato salad to share with others).
