Patreon is a new crowdfunding platform designed specifically for artists and other creatives. It differs from the better known funding sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo in that it is not designed to raise a single large sum of money for a one-off project. Rather, it is designed to let artists gather patrons who will support them by pledging small "tips" or donations for each new creation that is posted by the artist. I have created a Patreon campaign to support my work providing calming, stress-reducing art for healthcare settings, and I'm excited to show you the video that I created for the purpose:
I will be using funds from this campaign to create art that aligns with Evidence-Based Art research principles, and to promote programs that deliver this art to those who need it most, such as the Healing Art Cart.
If you or anyone you know have spent time in the hospital, please consider sharing this video with your network, and contributing to my campaign if you are able.
