Webinar: Kickstarter School, with Stephanie Pereira
Aug 08 2016
Monday, August 8, 7:00-8:30pm (EST)
Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.
Join Kickstarter's Director of Community Education Stephanie Pereira for a primer on how to bring a Kickstarter project to life. We'll take a look at some successful projects from across the site and explore what kind of rewards work best, how to spread the word about your project, and other helpful tips.
To attend this webinar, you will need access to a computer with speakers and an Internet connection (hard-wired is preferred over wireless). There is no special software needed.
Webinars are recorded. The recording will be shared with all previously registered participants after the webinar, regardless of whether participants attend the live workshop or not. Special one-time-only webinars, such as our Artists Talk Tech and Visual Arts Round Table interviews, will also be available for purchase after the fact.

ABOUT THE ONLINE LEARNING PROGRAM
We are proud to offer selected topics from PDP workshops to the general public through the Online Learning Program. We are dedicated to extending our reach to artists who are new to Creative Capital’s professional development offerings, as well as those PDP alumni who are interested in a refresher course. Many of these courses are designed for individual artists of all disciplines, while others will be discipline-specific.
Most Online Learning sessions will be approximately 90 minutes in duration, including lecture and Q&A sessions. Webinars are taught and moderated live by talented workshop leaders, so the information is always up-to-date and engaging. Q&A sessions are included to be sure that all our participants have the chance to follow up on specific concerns.

"I think the leaders all did such a wonderful job today. There is so much knowledge to digest and I know that I will keep learning long after I leave the classroom. This has been a transformative day. I feel empowered and better equipped to make my own artistic pursuits a reality."
Troy Burton participated in the 2015 Seven Elements of Strategic Marketing workshop in the Creative Capital office in New York City.
