The Golden Thread
a live online arts experience
The Golden Thread is a LIVE interdisciplinary online arts experience featuring Seattle artists has been called “fabulously defiant creativity” and “a much needed break”. We exist as a platform to allow artists from multiple disciplines to create work and get paid by supportive audiences.
Arts venues are closed in light of public health concerns around COVID-19, but community, dialogue, and fulfillment through the arts WILL persist and our artists WILL thrive!
Our first show was very well-received and generated much-needed income for the artists and some delightful entertainment for our community. We look forward to continuing to engage in this circle of support.
How does a live online show work?
Artists gather online and create a show. Rehearse. Get the lighting and audio just right. We feel the nerves and excitement of opening night. Then we put on a show!
As an audience, you buy tickets to enjoy the excitement of a LIVE event. You can dress up or stay in your comfies then sit back, relax, and allow us to entertain you with music, poetry, theater, dance, and art.
Audience members will be be able to bid on the live visual art being created with bids closing at the end of the show.
10% of the profits from the live event will be donated to a different non-profit for each show.
show dates + ticket information
When you purchase a ticket, you will receive a receipt as confirmation. 30 minutes before the show, you will receive an email with access information to view the live broadcast. The show will be available to view for 24 hours.
Selling tickets directly means the artists get paid sooner and the audiences don’t pay fees. All sales final except in the unlikely event that the event is cancelled.
We are currently accepting submissions from Seattle artists for our next two shows. We are looking for a diverse group of professionals for this show. Please fill out the submission form to be considered.
Compensation works like this:
- 50% of the ticket sales + the art sale for the live event will be split equally among all performers and sent to your payment method of choice the day after the show.
