Update: Although the KickStarter campaign has come to a successful close, it is still possible to make financial contributions--and people are doing so on a regular basis, which is great. Contact us to arrange a private contribution.
Books and prints are included as incentives at the $75 and $50/$100 levels respectively.
Monticello Road is a community project and the more we’re all involved, the better it will be. People often ask how they can contribute and here are some ways:
Kick Starter Campaign
You can donate money through KickStarter that will offset the costs of the exhibition, photo booths, gift prints, outreach, food for the opening and more. This will also form seed money for the storytelling documentary and the more we raise now, the better positioned we’ll be to receive foundation grants down the road. In exchange, you will receive rewards such as prints or copies of the 80-page picture book. [Donate now]
Many people have contributed time, expertise, and even food and drink. It is a fun, social project that involves talking to our neighbors. If you have a special skill or would like to bring food to one of our events, please contact me: we need all the help we can get.
Tell/Bring a Friend
This project is bringing new people into the arts, but sometimes those folks need encouragement or even a ride. Tell your neighbors about the events and bring them along—especially if they don’t usually go to art shows.
Walk the Road
The very most important thing you can do to make this project successful is to internalize its lessons and take them out into the world. Talk to your neighbors, smile at them and encourage them to share what they have to say. By encouraging others to do the same, our efforts will have a multiplier effect and bring about some real positive change.
