Dear potential Content Creator, Studio Assistant, Publisher or Publishing House,
Did you know that in ancient times scientists and artists were able to do their research and make their work because of important Patrons? Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Shakespeare, Beethoven and Mozart all used patronage to make ends meet while doing important work. It gave them freedom to use their creativity and intelligence on cases they were extremely motivated to work on and we all know where that led to.
Since the middle 19th century the European culture moved away from its patronage system to the currently known as more "classic" ways to finance arts: museums, theaters, mass audience and mass consumption.
I am going back to the old days using patronage to gain my freedom as an artist; to develop myself as a person and artist, to do research and make work on the subjects and themes I find important to make up for discussion.
