Students Create Kickstarter to Help Fund Spring Festival

Penn State’s Students Organizing the Multiple Arts, better known as SOMA, will once again host the annual Arts Crawl this year. This mini music and arts festival takes over various art and architecture buildings on the northern part of campus for one day out of year.

While most of their funding needs are met by the club’s budget or UPAC funding, SOMA is once again turning to the popular website Kickstarter, a funding platform for creative projects, to help cover some of the costs. The money raised by the Kickstarter will be used to pay local acts and smaller bands.

SOMA has successfully used the funding platform in the past and hopes to raise $1000 before April 4 this year. So far, the student org has raised about a quarter of their final goal.

SOMA created a video discussing the Kickstarter:

Arts Crawl is a free event that features bands, solo performers, dancers, kid-friendly activities and student art displays. This year’s headliner is indie rock group Tigers Jaw from Scranton, Pa.

The festival will take place on April 11 this year.
