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.

On Repeat

Do you ever get that feeling?

Photographer: Jaey Sun

Tossing and turning

From pillow to sheet

Covered to uncovering

my lonely, naked body

Putting on sweet melodies to fall asleep

Trying to forget you

Forget all of you

Who've stolen my heart

And thrown it back to me

Scratched

Scuffed

Bent

Stretched

So many scars left on my heart

No way to repair

So I turn

From side to side

Every night

To shake the memories out of my mind

To make room

For another one

And it repeats

Like the same with all the others

As if I want to hurt myself

To distract myself from what I know I should be doing
