Hey guys - I’m Sal and I’m the founding editor of a new site called CulturePledge.com. Our mission is to grow the arts crowdfunding space.
The short term plan is to get our arts and culture blog off the ground. We’re also aiming to launch our own arts crowdfunding platform in beta within the next 6 months. We’ve applied for a grant from GFTW to help us reach those goals.
I’ve been working on the project alone for about a month now. (In some ways I’ve been working on it my whole life but that’s another story.) It’s going pretty good so far. We cracked the top 1 million on the alexa site rankings today (yay). I’m now at the stage where I’d like to start working with more writers or other creative contributors.
We’re planning to focus maybe half our content on the arts crowdfunding niche directly. The rest of our content will be about whatever inspires us, so long as there’s some relationship to the core theme. This could be any arts topics (eg. retrospective pieces, profiles, reviews, interviews, opinions), crypto, startups, equity crowdfunding, universal basic income, thought pieces on topics like decentralization or creative and financial freedom, and of course, web monetization!
If you or anyone you know might be interested in contributing, I’d really appreciate an intro!
