Fundraising for the Free Artist Residency

Artist and musician Jean Smith has launched a 30-day IndieGogo campaign to support purchasing property to run a Free Artist Residency, to be bequeathed to a cultural activist group for use in perpetuity.

“I intend to purchase and run an existing property (an inn, large house or guesthouse) where artists (including musicians, writers and filmmakers) will reside while working on projects that intend to create progressive social change.

Accommodation for between 5 – 7 guest residents
Art studios
Rehearsal space
Writer’s cabin
Presentation area for workshops and collaboration”

I’m using my $100 USD paintings as perks – all funds raised go to purchasing property (a multi-building facility on a spectacular Canadian island) for the Free Artist Residency.

$100 USD Paintings Currently Available

Ideally, the campaign page will reach people beyond my FaceBook friends offering my paintings as $100 perks.

This campaign is a bit of an experiment to see if initial and existing connections result in funding – or if more networking and publicity need to be done.

“Hey, I don’t know if you know this revolution that is Jean Smith from Mecca Normal, but she is raising funds to create an artist residency in the Northwest / British Columbia. Jean has more integrity than most of the free world. Take a moment and read what she has planned and support her huge effort. Seriously she is running the show, get on board.” – KH, music composer
