Another Worthy Kickstarter: The Projects
With a week left to go, I wanted to make mention of an extraordinary kickstarter called The Projects, described as an "experimental art + comics festival in Portland." The brainchild of Maria Sputnik, Dunja Jankovic, Jason Leivian and Jason T. Miles, it's modeled after certain European festivals that value creativity over commerce. It will have panels, performances and collaborative projects aimed at erasing the divide between artist and audience, a line often created by commerce. The money they are trying to raise will go toward defraying the cost of flying in several of the guests as well as supplies. Please consider donating to this unique experiment.
