I’ve just kicked off my very first Indiegogo campaign to take The Love Lettering Project across the pond for a 5-city UK tour this June!
2013 marks the 9th incarnation of the project (!!) and I’m thrilled to have received a touring grant from the Canada Council for the Arts for this tour. For two-and-a-half weeks, I’ll be inviting people to write love letters to their cities in London, Brighton, Oxford, Nottingham and Liverpool.* I will be partnering with not-for-profits and other arts organizations (including the incredible A Good Week!)
This tour has been partially funded by the Canada Council with the requirement that I fundraise the rest of the money for this ambitious expansion project. Ta-da, this is where you come in! Any money raised will go towards this tour and anything else goes to more love lettering events! Check it out here!
(And there are perks! So many perks! Postcards! Hand-bound books! Personalized love letters! Head on over and take a look!)
Every little bit helps! And please share it however you can — Facebook, Twitter, blogs, telegrammes…
The countdown is on!
ps: My unending gratitude goes to Christa Couture who created this incredible video! And to Susan Kendal for donating her sewing skills in the perk department!
pps: the incredible embroidered wood map of Toronto behind me in the video is a Casey von Esteban original. A stunner!
