Hello Live Unchained world!

I’m Kristen, Live Unchained’s Chief Technology Officer.

I’m writing to thank you on behalf of the entire Live Unchained team for supporting our crowdfunding campaign with Warsan Shire. While we didn’t reach our financial milestone for the campaign, we learned a great deal along the way, and had a great time with all of you that participated on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, and of course, Indiegogo. The partnerships we forged through this campaign are valuable milestones all their own. When we look at all the love we received, every lesson we learned and our features in GOOD, Crunk Feminist Collective and Liberator Magazine, as well as partnerships with African Ancestry and, most recently Afro-Punk, we see “Terrifying, Strange & Beautiful” as a complete success.

Personally, there’s no greater feeling than working with someone that shares a sense of self-worth and dedication. That’s why Live Unchained founder, Kathryn Buford, is such a gift to this world — she inspires me in our collaborative projects, and every other area of my life. I first met Kathryn when she interviewed me for a Live Unchained article. I immediately appreciated the thought Kathryn put into her questions — it was one of the most sincere experiences I’ve ever had. It wasn’t long before Kathryn and I became friends, and then business partners. Last year I joined Live Unchained as Chief Technology Officer, mixing a bit of nerd into the effortlessly expressive talent already on board.

It’s Kathryn’s dedication to Live Unchained that spurred me to join the team, and the unparalleled work Live Unchained has done for artists and art lovers that made our recently concluded Indiegogo campaign such a beautiful experience.

For those of you that pledged a contribution towards our Indiegogo campaign, you will be receiving your beautiful perks soon!

It’s not too late to make a financial contribution to support our cause. You can make a financial contribution here.

All the funds we have raised and continue to raise will go towards capacity building as we continue to prepare for “Terrifying, Strange & Beautiful” in the Fall of 2014.

Thank you for giving us a brilliant start!

Kristen Nicole,

Live Unchained Chief Technology Officer
