Crista Cloutier gave a motivating talk about the struggles and joys of crowdfunding at the East Kent Cultural Conversation in Canterbury on the 4th June 2013, and I was lucky enough to be there. For anyone passionate about their projects, this is a must see. For me the part where she talks about those that support her, and those that do not, her words could not have been more true for how I felt at that time – and often do still. But her talk helped to encourage me, to not give up. Hopefully it will help you too.
