DONATIONS

As a not-for-profit organization, KAPSULA relies on your support to advance the climate of online art publishing in Canada and beyond.

Subscribing to KAPSULA is free, and we intend to keep it that way. However, none of our staff are paid and our contributors generously agree to publish their content without monetary compensation. Their provocative and often experimental articles, essays and interviews represent the necessity for publications like KAPSULA that strive to provide a platform for the reception and debate of fresh ideas in art writing.

We encourage you to consider a monthly donation plan of 3, 5 or 10 dollars (CAD). These small but consistent contributions are key in keeping this truly one-of-a-kind publication going.

How will my money be used?

KAPSULA PRESS is a non-profit organization that relies on donor support to continue publishing monthly, and always for free. The money you donate today will go toward:

  1. Organizing future educational and networking events for KAPSULA’s local readership
  2. Providing writers and artists with honoraria for their efforts
  3. Sustaining KAPSULA’s online presence
  4. Promoting KAPSULA through advertisement to maintain its steady growth in readership and scope, giving more writers and artists the opportunity to publish

Donations to KAPSULA may also fund future special projects such as printed special editions of the publication, panel discussions, exhibitions and podcasts.

How are payments processed?

All payments are handled securely through PayPal.
No PayPal? You can also donate using a credit card.

Lisa Visser Writers Fund

This fund is in memory of Canadian artist Lisa Visser and reserved for soliciting emerging arts writers, locally and abroad, to create text-based works that complement our quarterly themes. While KAPSULA will continue to derive most of our month-to-month content from our quarterly calls for submission, this fund provides us the opportunity to invite writers from outside our current networks and further define the editorial vision of the magazine. Each commissioned writer will receive an honorarium of $75.00 CAD as well as a feature in our online archive.

About Lisa Visser

(1983-2013)

Lisa Visser, who passed away in August of 2013 at age 29, was a warm, charismatic, and critically minded emerging artist and curator. She had an admittedly “difficult” relationship with the art world, focusing her interdisciplinary and collaborative practice on issues of communication, control, contemporary feminism, and animality. Lisa completed her Masters of Fine Arts at OCAD University in 2011 and was an avid yoga instructor and practitioner.

To honour Lisa’s spirit and commitment to her practice, commissions in her name will be considered based on a demonstrated ability by writers to engage with contemporary art and visual culture in a critical, reflexive manner while maintaining a distinct voice and linguistic style.
