Success! Students Receive Kickstarter Grant

Filed under: And another thing... — Frank @ 8:33 pm

Kesley and Jaeryn successfully raised the support to fund their grant from Kickstarter.com. The project reached its funding goal with a week remaining in the fund raising period. Thirty four people contributed to the grant fund raising a total of $1811. The two students will now be able to cover travel costs to photograph towns in southern Ohio, pay for printing paper and other materials, and send postcards, prints and copies of their book as rewards to their contributors.

What began as an idea for an independent study course has blossomed into a serious social document that I believe will be a major event in the lives of these two young photographers and will also serve as a model for the use of social networking to support arts projects that would otherwise be difficult or impossible to produce.
