Kickstarter’s head of music Molly Neumann recently told Music Ally about the crowdfunding firm’s plans to provide more post-funding support to creators.
One of those initiatives launched yesterday: The Creative Independent. It’s described as “a new resource of emotional and practical guidance for creative people” – essentially a blog that will publish a new essay or interview every weekday with “an established or emerging artist in which they discuss their practice, their process, and the struggles and triumphs that come with it”.
Poet Eileen Myles kicked it off yesterday, with musicians Björk and Philip Glass set to publish pieces in the coming days.
Kickstarter says that the Creative Independent will extend into the non-digital world to with “a series of live conversations with artists, authors, filmmakers, musicians, dancers, poets, playwrights, and others”.
