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.

You couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel.

Stop and watch me

While I conquer this new life

Soak in all your misery

While I shine in all this light

Remember I'm great

And you're just a wreck

Your lies have coated you

In dirty black molasses

Stay clear from the good

You'll just do more harm

Watch me

While I walk right over you

Don't dare to move

You'll taint my groove

Remember I have you

right where I want you

Watch me

Soak up in your misery

Alligator tears

Won't fool nobody
