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.

Some days can be high and others can seem low
Inevitably the muse for a fine rondeau
Today is about someone you know
Or a person I used to know
Stuck between clinging to or letting go
Rattled by the emotional presence you bestow
In my head, I can't find the right tempo
Promises they say; are just words
With the writings on the wall; we were two blackbirds
Venom from the fangs of a viper; allegations too absurd
But you believed them and never took my word
Forgetting the good times; you ate all of the shit they stirred
Now that all is gone, I'll save my tears in a bottle
I'll send you a little something as a reminder
To show that my sorrow does linger
And the pain in my heart still simmer
As our future together grow dimmer
And as a token of this unrequited love
I'll send you my tears in a bottle
