Put Your Money Where Your Mind Is—Join the 20UNDER40 Editor’s Circle!

Now in its final stages of production, 20UNDER40 needs your support in procuring the resources necessary to reach the broadest audience, inspire the richest dialogue, and have the greatest impact on the field. A grassroots project to its core, 20UNDER40 is now seeking $15,000.00 to:

  • Fund a marketing and publicity campaign designed to reach all corners of the arts and cultural sector—as well as the broader non-arts public;
  • Support the authors represented within the anthology with the resources necessary for them to engage audiences by participating in public appearances;
  • Redesign the 20UNDER40 website to act as a hub of dialogue concerning the future of the arts and arts education—including an interactive discussion platform for each chapter within the printed anthology, and;
  • Coordinate a publication launch that will bring together the 20UNDER40 community through workshops, author readings, panel discussions, and a celebratory launch party/performance.

Now’s your chance to actively engage in the process of redefining the future of the arts—all you have to do is visit our IndieGoGo campaign by December 1, 2010 and make your contribution.* Remember, memberships has its privileges…
