Edinburgh Fringe is nearly upon us. The 2018 installment of one of the world’s most well-known and best-loved performing arts festivals begins August 3, and 25 Kickstarter alumni will bring work to the fest this year.
To date, over 300 creators have brought Kickstarter-funded performances to Edinburgh Fringe, with the support of over 22,000 backers—a testament to the vital role that community funding can play in helping performers create and mount ambitious new works of dance, performance art, and theater.
Kickstarter’s Senior Performance Lead, Jessica Massart, is headed to Edinburgh to check out this year’s lineup and meet with members of the Kickstarter community. And on Saturday, August 11, she’ll give a free talk at Fringe Central discussing the ins and outs of running a Kickstarter campaign, including setting sustainable goals, effectively telling your story, creating manageable rewards, and building your community. Head here for more information and to RSVP.
