Crowdfunding and where I've been
I've been absent from the blogosphere recently for a variety of reasons. I tend to take on too many projects and then struggle to juggle everything BUT it's a great way to keep learning lots of new things and expand my horizons. My current focus is fundraising for an arts project, on a voluntary basis.
As a result, I set up and ran my first crowdfunder for the Mirabai Project, a not for profit group of musicians, performers and composers, for an innovative show in Kent with Argentine tango dancers. I invested a lot of time and energy into it, but just over a week before the crowdfunder ended, the crowdfunding platform went bust. Disaster! After upset, anger and despondency, I eventually got myself together and decided to try again with a different platform, IdeasTap. The link is here - do check it out - you will get to see a beautiful tango for harp and dancers on the video, and any contribution is very welcome. Do share the link if you enjoy the music.
