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.

I supped in the bowels of society and dined with the beggars and thieves, but made a promise to one who was honest and told me I shan't stay there, that I shall overcome my demons and I shall sup at the table of the rich and wealthy and that my mind shall no longer grow hungry, I overcame my plight which had brought to light a dream lit by the fire that burned within my desire to grow and now I ride that dream I won't go back everything has changed and my old life was nothing more than a dream
