2014 marks the ten year anniversary of the Infringement Festival. The 11-day-long dedication to the arts and creativity is nothing less than astonishing. The funny thing is, I don’t think that most people take into account the tremendous amount of time and energy that goes into the production. Not to mention the costs associated with pulling off the feat year to year. Advertising alone can be something of a hurdle.
Every year organizers plan the Infringement Festival so that artists can do their thing. The final ingredient is getting people out to watch the performances. That means that a schedule of events is compiled, which is then disseminated to the public so that they are made aware of the dates and the times to catch the shows. In order to effectively do this, it costs money.
The Infringement Festival is currently wrapping up a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo and is still 2000+ dollars away from reaching its goal. It’s crucial that fans of the festival pitch in to help at this juncture. Without the funds, there will be virtually no advertising, which means that people won’t know where and when to look for the artists who have spent countless hours preparing for the big day.
