Fashion Month is over…

What a program!

Well after a Launch Event, Fashion Forum, Clothes Swap, an artist residency, a mini Gift Pop Up Shop, 6 workshops facilitated by Melbourne Creatives, a Fashion Pop Up Shop with 14 local designers, features in local news and online media, our Sustainable Ethical Local Fashion Month program has come to an end.

We would like to thanks the wonderful team of volunteers who made all of this happen and the people who came, attended, engaged and supported Our Creative Community.

What’s in store for Colour Box Studio

The next steps we take will be defined by our Pozible crowdfunding campaign. Crowdfunding is basically a way to raise funding for projects using an online platform. We’re using the Australian model called Pozible. We’ve set a target of $7000 which is the minimum amount we need to roll out another 6 months of programing at our current pace – providing free launches and events, free promotion for our artists, very low commissions (everything you saw with the Fashion Program). It’s an all or nothing model, so if we don’t reach our target by 1st MAY 2013, we don’t get any of the funds pledged so far ($1700). This means that we are unable to continue operating at our current capacity.

Through our Pozible campaign it makes it possible for community to support our project and also get some great rewards for pledging funds. Crowdfunding puts the power back in the hands of the people and allows creative projects to happen without having to rely on the traditional modes of arts funding. We’ve teamed up with local artists and designers like Able and Game, Hannakin, Charlotte Filshie Jewllery, Ambette and weaver Lia Pa’apa’a to provide some awesome prizes for pledging your funds. This means that by supporting Colour Box Studio, you are also supporting local artists! (Check out some of the prizes in the left hand column).

Here’s the link:

Jump aboard!!

You can pledge any amount from $5 or above and we also give you a Facebook shout out (as well as your prize if we’re successful). Once you provide your secure payment details the funds will only be taken out on 1 MAY 2013 if we reach our $7000 target. We’re half way through our time but only at 25% of our target – we’ve got a long way to go but…

Every little bit helps…

• Pledge please spread word if you can via Social Media – here’s the link:
• If every one of our Facebook Fans could pledge $10 each – we could raise $8500 – wowha.
• So far we’ve had 39 Pozible supporters and we’re so grateful.
Stay tuned for more!
