Is it time to find ways to fund your art project by yourself?
Join artist Sean Fitzgibbon to learn the ins and outs of funding your art project through platforms such as Kickstarter in this FREE online workshop.
Learn what crowdfunding is and what it isn’t; discover the pros and cons of using online fundraising platforms; and find ways to drum up a network of supporters to see you through. Fitzgibbon will walk participants through his thought process for how he decided to crowdfund, his failures and his successes, and his journey to publishing a successful, historical graphic novel about The Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs.
Thursday, April 13, 10 a.m. - 12 p.m. Registration is free.
