Use Patreon to Make Money for Your Arts Practice

Would you like another income stream that plays to your strengths and shows your authentic creative self, while engaging in audience interaction? Our presenter Midori shares with you tips, strategies, common pitfalls, and how to use Patreon to bring you creative joy. She is an independent artist, not an employee of Patreon – because of this, she can share a perspective that you won’t get from their site.
Midori is a multidisciplinary artist based in the Bayview district of San Francisco. For the past seven years, she’s figured out how to make Patreon work for her as a steady income stream and source of creative motivation. She works with and coaches artists directly to help develop their own successful and joy-centered Patreon strategy. Check Midori’s Patreon page.
