Margaret Atwood has gathered a team of developers and is raising money to allow passionate fans around the world to interact with their favourite artists. Fanado, a mobile app, will cost about $85 000 to develop.
In this embedded video, Atwood introduces the new mobile app that will give fans a peek at the artist’s writing desk, recording studio or workspace and give them the opportunity to interact with their favorite creative person – writer/poet/ composer/ painter in digital space. The meetings can be archived, which gives a kind of stickiness and share-ability to these close encounters.
Your Name in Margaret Atwood’s Next Novel?
“For a $10,000 investment, you can actually win a spot in Atwood’s next novel along with a host of other rewards: Your name – or the name of a friend of nominee – as a character in Margaret Atwood’s forthcoming novel, ‘Maddaddam,’ or as a Gardener Saint. Bragging rights with all your friends – you’ll be surprised how cleverly Margaret weaves you into her story.”
