Event Details

Crowdfunding platforms are proving there’s a new way to raise money in the arts. As of April 2012, a total of 20,000 projects raised $200 million+ through Kickstarter alone. Join Arts + Tech SF and Emerging Arts Professionals (EAP) as we explore how crowdfunding platforms are being used in the arts and creative sector.

We’ll explore questions like:

  • How is technology and a hyperconnected world helping artists get their projects off the ground?
  • How are funding models being changed by technology?
  • What happens if my project isn’t funded?
