My first Kickstarter project!

by Priya Chandra

Well not really. I haven’t actually started a Kickstarter project, what I mean is I’ve donated for the first time to a Kickstarter project.

For people who don’t know what Kickstarter is, it is “a new way to fund and follow creativity.” Participants put up projects with a total funding amount and various pledge levels. These pledges usually come with a reward – either virtual or physical. If the total funding amount is met by a particular date then the project will go ahead, if not then all pledges are returned.

Obviously the projects range from the interesting and the feasible to the completely whacked out and there’s a high number of creative projects – like artists, musicians, writers etc all looking for assistance with different projects.

The project I picked was for an Artist’s Residence on a remote island – it just sounded really cool. The project has been fully funded – in fact it is overfunded which is great for the guys running the project – and I look forward to getting my reward:
