Kickstarter is a funding platform for creative projects. Everything from films, games, and music to art, design, science, and technology. Kickstarter is full of ambitious, innovative, and imaginative projects that are brought to life through the direct support of others.

If you want to learn how to use Kickstarter to

  • Creatively tell a story about your science, technology, or education project
  • Communicate these projects to a broad audience
  • Secure funds for these projects

Then, please join Kickstarter Art Program Director Stephanie Pereira for a primer on how to bring a Kickstarter project to life. We'll take a look at some successful projects from across the site and discuss what kinds of rewards work best, how to spread the word about your project, and other helpful tips.

Running a successful Kickstarter project will not only help you secure funds for your project, but will allow you to develop and demonstrate your communication and creative skills!

Reception to follow.
