How has Fractured Atlas benefitted your artistic practice?
Fractured Atlas has benefitted my artistic practice by helping to increase awareness and excitement around my project! It’s easy to attach my Fractured Atlas campaign link to my promotional materials. It makes the donation process easier for my donors, not to mention it provides an attractive incentive for them.
How has Fractured Atlas benefitted your revenue/income generation?
I still have a lot more money to raise, but it has been a great starting point to start receiving donations and has kept me accountable for getting as many donations as I possibly can.
What specific Fractured Atlas services or programs have you used?
I’ve used the individual appeal letter materials to craft my messaging for my campaign and Fundraising By Fractured Atlas. They’ve been very helpful!
Why do you think artists and organizations should become members of Fractured Atlas?
Artists and organizations should become members of Fractured Atlas because it will empower you as an entrepreneur and artist. Many artists are intimated by the business side of art, but this organization will inspire you.

What has been one of your biggest challenges as an artist or for your arts project and how did you push through it?
For me the biggest challenge is getting over the pride of having to ask for help. I’ve learned that you can be confident in yourself and ask for what you want in the most gracious and professional way.
Do you have any upcoming events that people should know about?
