The Creative Independent

The Creative Independent (TCI) is a growing resource of emotional and practical guidance for creative people, published ad-free by Kickstarter, a public-benefit corporation. We produce interviews, wisdom, and guides that illuminate the trials and tribulations of living a creative life, as told by working artists—including writers, musicians, designers, visual artists, and others. Our goal is to feed and grow the community of people who create.

Void Academy’s Siena Oristaglio offers advice for artists on how to raise funds to support themselves during crisis.

Over the past few months, many artists in my community have reached out for my advice on how to raise funds to support themselves through these times. That’s because along with two colleagues, I run an organization that helps artists to raise support for their work through crowdfunding, websites, and newsletters. Now, many of these artists—and even more of my friends—have lost gigs or have had their tours, shows, exhibitions, or events cancelled.
