Pioneer Valley Crowdworks
Crowdfunding resource for Western MA
Pioneer Valley Crowdworks is a community resource and collaborative group to help individuals and organizations in Western Massachusetts successfully use Kickstarter, Indiegogo, and other crowdfunding platforms.
Crowdfunding can be a crucial link to help artists raise money to fund or initiate their arts project. I have advised on a number of Western MA crowdfunding campaigns, but here are some arts related campaigns: It's A Snap! Important Group Show of Found Photos, The Vanishing Point: A Virtual Reality Music App, Runners: The Big Snow Job - Graphic Novel.
Speaking engagements include the 2015 Western MA Film & Media Exchange.
Hosts regular meetups for artists to get best practices on crowdfunding.
