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.

she is used to this
it has always been like this
wind gently dancing in through the windows
she was lying beside him,
her eyes darting across words emblazoned
upon an air purifier
sitting unhelpfully below
an open window
the wind dances its ten-minute journey
from the ocean to this little box
she can call home,
but for only thirteen months
for these things never last
she doesn't think much of the wind
or its gentle freshness
always staving off the summer heat
she doesn't know its preciousness
until the breeze's journey takes hours
and never manages to reach her, lost in the city
