What is Vocal?
Vocal is a tool for artists and creators to fund and build community around their creative practice.

How does Vocal work?
With Vocal, people subscribe to support creators on an ongoing basis. In return, creators open the door to their creative practice — by sharing their process, notes from the field, in-progress previews, and other rewards. It’s a way for creators to build a community of dedicated and meaningful support around the work they make.

How do I join Vocal?
Right now, we have some early guidelines for the scope of Vocal. Vocal is for the continuous funding of creators, whether people or collectives, who have a creative practice in one or more of our supported categories: visual and performing arts, film and video, publishing, design and technology, music, comics, food and craft, and games.

A Juggalo's Vow

Poem

Raise it high and bring it down.

I lay my hatchet on the ground, down before my lette's feet.

Swear my life to this clown to keep.

She who holds my heart, in her palm.

Her crystal eyes, a beholding beauty of black and white.

Eternal bliss I shall find. If I die for her, for her name.

May my hatchet be raised once more, to fall those who would strike at her.

If I fail, or go astray, may my paint be washed away.

For my life will have been in vain, my head hung low in shame.

A clown no more will I be without her darkness over me.

Lay my hatchet at her door when the day comes I shalln't return.

Leave it with my love and nothing more
