Kickstarter Launches Drip for Artists Seeking Support

Launching with 64 artists (including CH favorite Shantell Martin) Drip is Kickstarter’s new artist support platform. The crowdfunding giant purchased Drip—originally a service for musicians—last year. Now, it will enable sponsors to invest in the careers of artists. In exchange, “backers get access to a fuller picture of the artist’s process, including studio visits, field notes, and advance access to shows and work,” according to Artnet. As Kickstarter has mentioned, their flagship platform is very much about projects; Drip is about people. Read more at Artnet.
