Felilum & bennmush! Welcome to the Patreon home of Omni-fest, a confluence of arts and artisans, creativity and play, hosted by the Academy of Omniosophical Arts & Sciences and benefiting Whimsicalitea, a 501(c)(3) arts nonprofit.

Omni-what?
Omni-fest is comprised of ongoing collaborative projects and live in-person events, culminating in a weekend festival in Long Beach, California in July 2021. The academy is currently publishing its second anthology (Seasons of Verse), and Whimsicalitea has chosen its first scholarship recipient whose debut solo book will be published in spring 2019. The weekend festival is about celebrating artists who are trying new things, or trying old things in new ways. From authors to musicians to fine artists, filmmakers, chefs, and craft artisans, the festival will bring together creators and potential fans via live talks and panels, craft classes, collaborative project workshops, entertainment, outdoor activities, scavenger hunts, and social shenanigans.

So how does this work?
For those who are new to Patreon, it’s an arts crowd-funding system that builds community and enriching relationships. Like a fine wine, the patron experience improves as it ripens, giving patrons and creators opportunities to grow together as a community. If you want to get involved but aren’t sure which tier’s right for you, feel free to give one a test drive. They’re based on a monthly contribution, and you can change or discontinue your pledge level at any time.

Where do I fit in?
As part of our inner circle, you'll be privy to tons of stuff mere mortals can only dream of (*wink*). Depending on your level, you'll get patrons-only content, can take online classes for free, be thanked in books, snag some swag, and come to Omni-fest for free! (Pesky housekeeping note: You will be charged at the time you pledge. Thereafter, you will be charged at the beginning of each month. Thus, if you pledge on the 25th of the month, you'll be charged at that time as well as a week later when the first of the month rolls around ... Just letting you now so you don't freak out when the time comes. The funds will go to our nonprofit, if that helps come tax time. xo)

What sort of content will you be 'creating'?
In addition to live events, we’ll create books and videos that feature our artists, give updates on the festival, announce collaborative projects … That sort of thing.

For now, take a gander at the tiered rewards in the sidebar to see if anything catches your fancy. And for more information visit us at omni-fest.org .

Cheriste som!
