Values in crowdfunding the arts in the Netherlands
What is it about?
This article discusses the outcomes of a value based analysis of the crowdfunding website Voordekunst.nl. Using value sociology (Boltanski and Thévenot) the research tries to assess which types of values (e.g. artistic values or promotional values) project makers stress in their information on the website. A survey assesses which reasons people donating money have for choosing a certain project to donate to.
Why is it important?
As more and more artists are dependent on private sources of income, insight in the reasons behind crowdfunding and success factors of crowdfunding campaigns is necessary.
