hola! here are a few paragraphs from my newzletter, which i sent out yesterday to my mailing list. plz be in touch if you'd like to receive my newzletters in the future ~ mailing list is always kept private/bcc. i am STOKED to start campaigning in february for my small business venture and performance art projects! here are some words to prep ya and pump ya up! xoxo, k *
"also, at some point in february, i am launching an art campaign; this is my biggest news. my campaign is composed of 3 tiers, each one connected. please stay tuned for this project's launch, and know that any online share or repeated sharing (of the campaign video) helps in such a huge way.
... accessing new faces, new fans, new supporters, as well as long-time supporters and old pals from school, is something that will contribute to "campaign success." i see campaigns have incredible success 4 any number of reasons, but one reason that remains primary = friends help friends to "pump-up the project" by talking about it repeatedly online. plz do!
my good friend at youngblood productions (www.jasonyoungblood.com) is helping with the campaign vid; he is also a key part of the project's second tier ~ (hint: short performance art film in costa rica amongst waterfalls!) the amazing thing i've been considering is this: if each individual jason and i are combinédly connected to through social media donates the minimum-ish of $10, we'd be well on our way.
... now, imagine if friends, patrons of the arts, businesses, etc. were just a smidge more generous, we're talking the sort of "campaign success" that allows an individual artist to really see their dream through, to lay the foundation for making creative-based income and for increasing productivity.
my work is often collaborative, so this isn't just about me. i care to work with others i've met along the way. in prepping for the campaign, i am already re-connecting with collaborators, which feels awesome, and i possess huge hope that new networks here in costa rica will continue to appear. #aspire #newlifephase #iwantit #workingartist #hollamami"
