LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE INTERNET, I come bearing exciting news!!
The Vespertine Circus, my small & beloved touring circus troupe, is stepping up our game. Bigtime. We transitioning from a part time LLC with seven regular contractors, to a full-time nonprofit org that will employ 10 people. How? Gosh, let me tell you, there are a lot of steps between here and there. It’s a rather daunting staircase, but I believe we can do it.
Step one is to reach, and hopefully surpass, our crowdfunding goal on IndieGoGo, which will pay for the music & costumes for our new show: Hinge.
Please take a look, share it, and contribute if you can (buy the circus a cup of coffee?)
If we do well garnering support here, the next step is to host a few fundraising events in our rehearsal space, and then start applying for grants & corporate sponsorship. We have nonprofit status right now, via our amazing sponsors at Fractured Atlas, and the more funding we have already collected (thus the IGG) the more likely we are to get the support of larger entities. Basically, this campaign is not only for music and costumes, but to prove that we have a strong following, and we’re serious about the Vespertine Circus, and this show. Here’s our chance to show the world we’re ready.
Will you join us?
