Help me reach audiences again! I can't currently perform in person, so I'm funding for equipment to do high-quality online shows instead!

by Ava Beaux in Bristol, England, United Kingdom

I haven't performed to an audience in 5 months - I need to adapt my business.

I originally thought I mainly performed close-up and stage magic for money, but this pandemic has shown me how wrong I was to believe that - I miss performing to audiences a hell of a lot, and I want to find new, viable ways of connecting with audiences again!

However, even though the current situation has enabled me to rediscover my passion, money is still an object.

This is because the recent situation has taken away alllll of my performing income.

At the moment, my business feels stagnant: I haven't got gigs coming in, the new show I'd written for a new venue hasn't yet been performed, money is very tight, and I should currently be performing with all of my creative buddies at the most amazing arts festival, The Edinburgh Fringe.

So I need to adapt.

I would love to use this platform to fund new ways of making my business viable - 

  • Tech equipment to put on high-quality online, interactive magic shows
  • Materials to make handcrafted magical Ava Beaux gifts to sell on Etsy
  • Equipment to do outdoor shows / busking

If I can fund these projects above, then I can get my business moving forward, and start entertaining people again, making them gasp and smile at the same time. 

Thank you so much for reading through my page; I hope to be sending one of my rewards over to you soon!

Lots of love,

Ava xx
