Misnomer Dance:
Developing Online Tools for the Arts
Help us raise $10,000 without contributing a dime
Vote for us on IdeaBlob today! (reg req’d)

The internet has created new opportunities for artists who continually struggle to find funding. Help us create exciting ways for people to discover arts online!

In addition to choreographing for Misnomer Dance Theater, I am working to develop free tools to increase bookings and revenue for performing artists, and create engaging online content for you, our audiences.

I have a background in computer science, and a deep interest in helping the performing arts effectively utilize the web to develop lasting relationships with audiences online. Our initial efforts were featured in Business Week Magazine, so we know we are building something useful. With your help, we can help artists while building the arts community!

Support our idea on IdeaBlob!

What will Misnomer do if we win $10,000 for this idea?

Your vote will help us

1) BUILD web-streaming capabilities for rehearsals enabling audiences to “attend” live rehearsals online and interact directly with artists.

2) CREATE an online theater in which visitors can watch and direct performances from multiple perspectives including back stage views, and performers’ point of view via body mounted cameras.

3) DEVELOP tools to request and display the geography of artist’s online audiences. Venues in new cities can then have ready-made audience bases.

These online tools will help transform artist’s websites into sites of participation.

Help create a tremendous impact in the arts world!
