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.

Poem for a Good Beer

To quench a real thirst

There is one beer I turn to first

It's the delectable liquid nectar

From the brewery we all get set to

Go and be merry while drinking a brew

The best drink you could make from the old hop stew

No finer ale you could ever find

With micro-brewed flavours so many and fine

You can even take your beloved pooch

While having some beer and maybe some lunch

No festivity could ever be great

Without some BrewDog beer, drunk by the crate

So if you're out and about and the brain's in a fog

Come have a drink at the old BrewDog.
