The Future Is Beautiful Patronathon
September 11, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
What’s a patronathon you ask?? – well it’s a bit like comic relief. We entertain the masses on Facebook live for two hours in the hope we can get people to laugh/cry their way into donating.
I came up with this idea whilst on a bus in India as a way to get the crowdfund moving for The Future Is Beautiful.
Why do we need support? Well, our team are working on this as a gift to the world because there are so many people challenging the dominant story we are living in – and who have ideas that can lead us to a beautiful future. The truth is, we all have! And that’s why we need inspiring and a little nudge which is what happens on the podcast.
We weave politics, spirituality, creativity and sustainability so that we can come out of our silos of thinking into a more integrated way of being.
We interview a diverse range of humans (like you). These inspiring conversations look into the darkness and difficulties of life and challenging the status quo, providing comfort and a grounded optimism.
what’s a patron?
now anybody can be a patron, you don’t need tons of cash, you can just donate anything from the price of a banana per episode to something much bigger. if enough of you do this, then we are funded by our listeners which means we can remain advertising free – and spend our time actually looking at how we can live fuller lives rather than sell you stuff you don’t need.
at the moment, amisha (host & producer) works for free, and lucy (writer) and jack (sound editor) get a very small amount for the work they do. we want to all be able to spend more time working on this and feel less squeezed!
