…because we’ve got one week to go until we launch our crowd funding effort for The Busker’s Guide to the Galaxy: busk.co/guide
I could write a book about all the things I think this will do for the world of street performance. But, don’t take my word for it. Check out what other people are saying:
Keep Streets Live (UK)
“I think the Busker’s Guide to the Galaxy is a really important project, because it’s always been a part of the busking community that we’ve been connected, and now in the digital age we need to keep that connection going, so we can share information and help each other out” – Chester Bingley from Keep Streets Live.
The Show Salon (worldwide)
“I’ve been travelling for many years as a street performer and I see this project as a great way for us to share information and get to know each other, and I wish it had existed for the last twenty years” – Julian Bell from The Show Salon
The Countdown is on!
We’ve already gotten a grant from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, which gets us about 1/2 the way there. It’s maybe the world’s first arts grant for buskers, so let’s put it to good use!
If we don’t hit at least 1/4 of our £8,000 target on August 7th (the day that we launch), we probably won’t meet our goal.
So please, get ready to donate, to share and to let the world know!
