The idea, really, came from a total exhaustion from crowdfunding.
There's nothing wrong with leaning on your community to build art and create initiatives, but at this point I think most of us have simply given what we can.
So I figured it'd be a great idea to find a different course-- a way to create, share, nurture our culture, and raise money for good causes.
So, the plan is:
- Create goods that we all can use
- Stick a pretty large profit margin on it
- Report publicly about the cash coming in
- Dispense profits as grants to art projects.
Art grants are going to be dispensed on a quarterly basis, and projects will be selected from local Toronto initiatives.
