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.

Happy as I Could Be

To Appreciate Life as Me

Drown me in a river of milk

Dip me in a pool of honey

Life only gets softer than silk

Happiness lies in tranquility and a penny

Foes become friends

Friends become family

To support me like bookends

Together we stand firmly

To find love worth dying for

Find joy in who I become

To give and love more

To live a life far from humdrum

So the fickleness does not shake me

So the hassles of life make me

So the anger never breaks me

To feel happy even when they berate me

To love me for me

To appreciate life as me

To be true to me

To be happy as I could be
