Through my YouTube videos, I recently come out as a visual artist who is Christian on the conservative side of politics. As someone who used to be firmly atheist and left-aligned, this has impacted my career and  I now need a way to continue creating and showing my videos and art. So, Patreon is my new 'safe space' where I can find the support to wrestle, rant and work through my Christianity via the lenses of politics and the media.

Your support means that I can keep on working with my husband Daniel (the Chockabox) to make one YouTube video each month while supporting our small family - Eli (5 years old) and Shiloh (3 years old). 

Who Is Bindi Cole Chocka?

Award-winning artist, Bindi Cole Chocka was born in 1975 in Melbourne. She is currently a PhD candidate at Deakin. Mixing photography, video and installation, Bindi makes artwork exploring identity that traverses the line between the self, the cultural and the political. In the last 10 years, Chocka has held 25 solo shows and been in over 60 group exhibitions. She has been shortlisted for 18 art prizes and won or placed in 6. In 2010, Chocka was named as one of the Top 100 Most Influential people. Her work is held in many collections across the globe. She is married and has two children.

What Has Changed?

Well, that used to be my bio, however about a year ago, I started to make videos for YouTube  (that I consider to be artworks in themselves) on the tensions produced in me through becoming a Christian. Some of those tensions include becoming the thing I mocked, a political conversion from left to right and the perception Christianity holds in the mass media. The video on my political conversion recently went a little bit viral and now everything has changed. I was immediately pulled from an upcoming exhibition and the art world has gone silent on me.

So now I find myself here on Patreon wanting to find a community of people who are interested in discussing the tensions around Christianity and politics in a non-judgemental way.

The benefits of Patreon are manifold: As I continue to make YouTube videos, I am not beholden to anyone or their agenda and neither are you.

You're here because you appreciate what I've done in being honest about my spiritual and political conversion. I'm asking you to consider pledging what you can and, in exchange, I promise to continue to deliver honest videos exploring my newfound identity that challenges and stimulates minds, plus behind the scenes footage that no-one else gets to view.

How does Patreon work?

This simply is a crowdfunding platform where you pledge a monthly donation and join a community of others who support what I'm doing. Think of it as a voluntary subscription service where you decide the amount you would like to pay.

Importantly, you are never locked in — you can opt out or change your pledge at any time.

All contributions are deeply appreciated.
