We’re excited to officially announce Bond, an intimate conference examining how creators make a living through the internet.

Bond will focus on the realities of running your creative practice as a business on the internet. We’ll cover everything from establishing a community to building a sustainable career using crowdfunding and community patronage. Let’s trade stories, learn from one another, and figure it out together.


The Bond conference will take place at the historic Gray Area Grand Theatre located in San Francisco on March 9th, 2018 to a limited audience. It’s a fun and versatile location in the heart of the Mission district close to all kinds of cool restaurants, bars, and small businesses.

We will be featuring an eclectic lineup of speakers who all have a unique perspective on building communities and embracing your passions. Featured speakers include Jamie Wilkinson (Kickstarter), Erica Baker (Patreon), Indhira Rojas (Anxy), Kat Blaque (vlogger & illustrator) and Austin Kleon (writer) with more to be announced on the official website in the coming weeks.
