Visit to Kickstarter OfficesPosted: August 16, 2012
Stephanie Pereira hosted us for a nearly two hour info session that covered the core issues in running a successful kickstarter campaign: be clear about what you are doing, set awesome but convincing/reasonable goals, tell a story, make your rewards engaging, communicate well with your community/fans/friends/mom, etc. Our extended conversation really explored how these are good practices for any kind of application (grant, residency, etc.)
Afterwards we visited Lower East Side galleries. Risa Needleman gave the New York Arts Practicum a walkthrough of the “Furniture” show at Invisible Exports.
