Hey, UK! Kickstarter + The Guardian are hosting five talks, just for you.

Share this post

Since our UK launch in 2012, we’ve been (delightfully) overwhelmed with the number of brilliant creative projects coming from communities all over the UK. And on the heels of passing £100 million in funding for UK projects, we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Guardian Live, featuring a series of five talks to be held in London and Edinburgh from July through November.

Each talk is centered around a specific creative category — including Games, Arts, Design, and Technology — and will provide tips and best practices for how to craft a great campaign and rally a community around a project. Some incredible UK creators will be joining us onstage to discuss their experiences using Kickstarter and to answer questions from the audience.

More details below — we hope to see you there!

      Not everyone in the UK lives in or near London or Edinburgh...
