How to raise money for your creative dream project.
Is it possible to gather a crowd that wants what you are dreaming of making? Is it possible that this crowd will buy your product in the making?
Yes it is. Illustrator and graphic designer Lena Nicolajsen is a living proof that creative dreams can come true with help from a network around the globe, and she will tell you all about how one of the most popular crowdfunding platforms, Kickstarter works in real life.
In her talk Lena will go through the process from idea to finished product. Especially she will concentrate on communicating with followers, the press and other groups of interest.
Insomnia - The smallest hell
Illustrator and graphic designer, Lena Nicolajsen has chosen to go in deep in one of humanities smallest hells, Insomnia.

The story is a part of the smallest stories that happen to us with a normal nondramatic life.
