We just finished our crowdfunding campaign with Indiegogo and below you can read the message we just sent out to all our contributors... what a great experience, and now onwards to Elsewhere No. 01!
The end is only the beginning…
Yep, this morning at 9am Berlin time the shutters came down on the crowdfunding campaign for Elsewhere: A Journal of Place. We wanted to mark the occasion by saying a great big thank you to all of you… without the contributions of 131 people in 15 different countries we would never have reached our target. Not only that, but by raising over €6,200 we have taken a big step towards the second edition and the ultimate goal of establishing the journal for editions to come.
We also wanted to give you a heads up about what is to come next:
The first edition is nearly ready to go the printers, and will be launched on Wednesday 17th June 2015 in Berlin. If you are somewhere nearby we would love to see you at the launch event, which will take place at 8pm at Cafe Tasso on Karl-Marx-Allee.
We will send out all your copies in the week before the launch, including all your perks (the postcards, the notebooks and the prints).
If you signed up to be a patron, we will be contacting you to find out where you want your extra copies sent and which name you would like to have appear in the inside cover of the first edition.
If you donated without selecting a perk, we will get in touch to make sure you really don’t want to receive the journal and the perks you are entitled to.
What else? We will be launching our regular online shop on the website in the next few days so you can tell your friends where to get hold of a copy of the first edition, as well as planning the launch events and our festival appearance at Fort Gorgast on the German-Polish border in July. And then we will start work on Elsewhere No.02, published in September.
We hope you enjoy the journal when you finally get it in your hands in June, and once again we are so grateful for all your support… the journey to elsewhere continues!
