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.

Earth's Transformation

After the green has become multi-colored, and the leaves hesitatingly gravitate toward the Earth's center. 

There, they will eventually dry out, crumple into used up pieces of paper, get scraped up and thrown away. 

Allowing fresh new green to grow without being suffocated by the passing of those who already enjoyed their prime and autumn fashion. 

When the snow falls, the Earth’s energy transforms. 

Winter is a cloak. 

The ground’s core remains beneath it all, however its appearance has been altered. 

Yet, we shall not fear what has happened. 

The sun still rises once a day, although we may not always see it smile as brightly as it had in the past. 

This does not mean that the warmth has eloped, or that the air no longer wishes to hold and cradle you with its sheet of overwhelming love. 

I can make you this one promise:

Summer has not vanished, it is only in hiding, just as fall was its disguise, and spring is bubbling below the surface, awaiting its moment to rise. 

Nothing is ever gone, everything has a continuous presence, it can become visible just as quickly as it can disappear.
