About this project

Hashtags Unplugged is an art exhibition visualizing 10 memorable hashtags. They have sparked conversations, inspired change and brought awareness to important issues we’ve faced. We invite artists of varying disciplines to create a piece inspired by one of the featured hashtags.

We've got an amazing group of diverse artists for this exhibition. Here are a few of them:

To put this exhibition we'll need a few things. Your pledges will go towards:

  • Venue/gallery space: $14,000
  • Artist Stipend: $6000
  • Onsite exhibition crew: $2000
  • Tech integrations: $3000
  • Opening and Closing Night event: $5000
  • Postcards and Catalogue: $3000
  • Marketing: $2000
  • and a buffer for Kickstarter fees.

This will be an ALL or NOTHING campaign. If we reach our goal, pre-production starts right away and the exhibition will open this spring! If we are even a dollar short, the exhibition will be cancelled and everyone will be sad... :(

Great question! First and foremost, my undying gratitude. Secondly, here is an outline of the rewards:

The postcards and catalogues have an estimated delivery date of September 2016. We will ship these perks a few weeks after the show’s closing date this spring.

Hey there! I'm Kim Goulbourne, a chronic creator, designer and developer running Bourn - a small creative studio focused on crafting purpose-driven experiences. We've launched digital experiences like our recent Founder Mantras, a daily source of quotes and words to live by for founders by founders, and Send Thanks To, a tool to craft the perfect digital thanks.

Before starting Bourn I created a product called Hshtags, a social media search engine for hashtags. For the last Year In Review, we wanted to highlight the most viral hashtags of that year in a more interesting way so we invited artists to create a digital piece inspired by one of the hashtags. We then launched “This Year In Hashtags”, a microsite featuring the artwork.

Here are a few of the pieces from that year:

This year, we’re taking it offline in an art exhibition to give you a chance to experience the most pivotal moments in our culture through the eyes of our passionate artists. Help us bring this exhibition to life! 

A huge THANK YOU to our awesome media partner, Social Media Monthly for supporting the exhibition.

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge will be raising all the funds we need to bring this exhibition to life in New York. We need to raise the full amount in order to cover the most expensive parts of our budget. Also, putting on an exhibition isn't a simple task and though we foresee challenges, we are ready to tackle them.
