Why are you choosing to crowdfund on iFundWomen?
Revere is a revolutionary concept and event that is in the "women's sexuality" space, and this is a difficult space for conventional investors. As Cindy Gallop says: "No one wants to publicly raise their hand and announce that they’re pro-sex. It’s all about fear of what other people think."
We are looking for progressive, forward-thinking funders, both men and women, who believe strongly that the future is a world where the feminine is revered and respected—from head to toe, inside and out, exactly as She is. iFundWomen provides an incredibly supportive environment for this. Plus, they know that women only receive 2-6% of venture funding—and when women do get funded, we're working with 50% less capital than our male counterparts. Supporting women-owned and operated businesses is (clearly) very important to us!
What does "embodied movement" mean?
Embodied movement can manifest as many things, but mainly it's organic, unstructured movement, or movement that involves tuning into your body awareness or proprioception (a fancy term meaning "knowing where your body is in space"). It can look like freeform dance, it can look like lying on the ground, stretching, shaking or moving parts of your body that feel stiff or constricted. It can feel like an unraveling, a loosening, a freeing of your limbs, joints and bones. At Revere, embodied movement shows up in the first and third Acts (surrounding the performances), which are designed to bring the audience more deeply into their bodies and present to their feelings.
Why are you raising $25,000+?
Great question! We want to grow Revere from an experiment happening in private residences in Boulder to an established event in multiple cities to catalyze global change for women. Here's a breakdown of all the things we'll use the moolah for: Accounting, marketing/advertising, promotional materials (design, production, distribution), event producers + on-site staff (assistants, house mom, DJ, cleaning services, MC, bartender, bouncer), software, website creation (design, etc.), staff, utilities, travel, event catering, space, equipment rental, insurance, legal fees.
I want to donate a certain amount of $$$, but I don't necessarily want the specific reward attached. Help?
We can work anything out with communication! For example, if your reward is Revere tickets, and you don't need them because you've already purchased some elsewhere, or you're traveling in 2017 and won't be able to commit to attendance, you can either gift them to someone else in your name, or you can send me a message personally and perhaps another gift on the menu is better for you and makes more sense. :) Also, if you'd like to make an anonymous donation, I can make sure to NOT put your name anywhere you don't want it!
You mention Revere events in 2017. How many will there be?
If we reach our goal of $25,000, you can count on at least 5-6 Revere events in 2017. If we exceed our goal, we will aim for 7-12 events in 2017!
Where in the world will the events be?
If we reach our goal of $25,000, there will definitely be events in Los Angeles, New York City and continuing events in Boulder/Denver. We plan on expanding to 2-9 additional cities beyond those in 2017—and it's all up to where you are! For example, if many of our backers come from New Orleans, you can be sure we'll be having an event there! Feel free to let us know your location (U.S.) here. If you're international, simply email us after backing to: reverenights (at) gmail!
If a couple of folks and I want a private Revere event, which backer level should we choose?
Great question! This is a fabulous choice for weddings, holiday parties, special occasions and conscious gatherings of any kind. We can tailor make this for you. You would choose the $7,000 level (for United States cities) or the $10,000 level (for worldwide cities) and remember that ALL backer rewards lower than that are also yours! Pool a group of 5, 10 or 20 people together if you like!
So, I get it. But, I'm wondering if you have a succinct way of explaining this, so I can tell my friends/coworkers about it.
Sure! Revere is an interactive experience that celebrates women and their empowerment. By supporting this event, you're supporting women having more active, authentic voices and expression in the world. This expands the cultural boundaries of freedom and equality for women everywhere.
