“Artists often come to Kickstarter to raise money for their fall performances while they’re also trying to produce the show, sell tickets, and hold down another gig. Simply put, no one should have to worry about asking more from their donors on top of prepping for tech week.

With Performance: In Progress, I want to take some of the stress out of funding by helping artists to run campaigns earlier and with more support. 

Together, we can make crowdfunding more manageable and shine a light on some of the great performances that will hit the stage this fall."

Start your project

Launch a Dance, Theater, or Performance Art Kickstarter project anytime between May 1—31, 2019. We’ll share what you’re up to with the Kickstarter community while your campaign is live and when it’s time for the premiere.
