The Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) is fostering the next generation of innovative and entrepreneurial artists and designers. Check out the RISD's Curated Page for a look at just some of the creative projects that students, faculty, and alumni have launched on Kickstarter.
On November 5, 2016, Stephanie Pereira, Kickstarter’s Director of Learning and Engagement, will join RISD’s Art of Business Bootcamp to help students discover the resources they need to make their ideas a reality. For those of you who can't attend Stephanie's bootcamp session, we've pulled together a rundown of three successfully funded campaigns launched by RISD students. Wynn Bauer and Nate Mell equipped their production studio with high-quality materials so they could create beautiful custom wares. Crafter Rebeca Raney discovered a place to bring her whimsical world to life; hosting her first pop-up show in New York City. The WOVNS textiles team was able to use the funds they raised to experiment with one-of-a-kind fabrics.
Each artist used the platform to gain exposure, build community and seek out funding to bring their ideas to life. Most importantly, they established real, human connections with their backers and explored the basic principles of entrepreneurship. You can do the same! Learn how by exploring the case studies below for insights into how to make your project stand out on Kickstarter and resonate with your community.Read more
