Our friends over at the Art of Cool are gearing up for a 2 day mega music festival down in Durham, NC — a much needed platform for a truly underrated scene — and they need your help to get it funded! The Art of Cool is a “501(c)(3) jazz presenting non-profit organization” whose mission is to ”present, promote and preserve jazz-influenced music.”
Along with the obvious musical benefits, the Kickstarter campaign lists some of their other goals as such:
1.This festival will attract new people to downtown Durham and help promote the assets that make it unique and viable.
2.The festival will be tailored to fit the cool image/identity of downtown Durham.
3.This festival will get people thinking about what is important and worth preserving in downtown Durham and encourage them to invest in the places they live.
