The Ethics of Crowd-Funding
by Cameryn Moore
There aren’t many things that I remember solidly from my M.S. in Arts Administration, mostly because it was all about fairly to very large-scale institutions, planning multi-million-dollar approaches to target eight years ahead, using tactics such as offshore bank accounts… you see what I mean, though. The air was a little too thin up there, and I was working in a scrappy little community theatre. I needed to devote whatever brain cells I had left to legitimate challenges facing me right now, or maybe tomorrow.
Artists and producers, take a moment to read the original document at the link. If crowd-funding is here to stay, while government funding and other sources are well on their way out, we owe it to ourselves to put more conscious thought into our practices, and this is a great start.
