October is arts and culture month here at Repair the World – our 31-day celebration of the transformative, world changing power of art.
So this month, in part 3 of our ongoing crowdsource funding series, we scouted some inspiring arts and culture-related projects that are currently campaigning for support. We don’t know the people involved in these projects personally, but we think the work they are doing is worthy of some serious attention. We hope you do too!
HART Project: This IndieGogo campaign, which was founded by a nurse/artist in Canada, aims to inspire kids from the inner city of Vancouver to paint murals and connect in new ways with their community. Funding Goal: $3,000 / Deadline: October 10, 2013.
Paint a Favela: This Kickstarter campaign is like a mural project on a totally different scale. Two artists, Haas and Hahn are raising money to paint an entire favela in Rio de Janeiro, both to create a thing of beauty, and give residents something to enjoy and be proud of. Funding Goal: $100,000 / Deadline: October 31, 2013.
Arts for Global Peace and Justice This IndieGogo campaign was launched by the Maple Tree Literary Supplement, a cutting edge, multi-disciplinary online journal. Donations will support the creativity and self-expression of artists in Canada and worldwide and increase intercultural communications by endowing MTLS’ future. Goal $75,000 / Deadline: October 14, 2013.
The STL Mural Project This Kickstarter campaign aims to revitalize St. Louis’s downtown via an urban beautification mural project. Goal: $8,500 / Deadline: Nov 1, 2013
