Kickstarter: Bring your Creative Idea To Life
Join us as we explore Kickstarter, the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects. Kickstarter’s own Stephanie Pereira leads off the evening with a presentation on how to bring your project to life. Learn how to structure a project, what kind of rewards work best, and other helpful tips and valuable stats. Next we’ll take a more detailed look at the anatomy of a successful project. Filmmaker Theresa Loong, the Asian American Arts Alliance, and Flux Factory will share their experiences using the platform.
This project is organized by Kickstarter and the Queens Council on the Arts. In 2012, QCA will present professional development workshops to assist artists and arts organizations to build their business, marketing and fundraising skills.
