Good art comes from tough places. Over summer 2020, I went for broke, doing ecological volunteering long after it was no longer comfortable. During this time, I developed my art significantly, expanding from performance poetry to develop an immersive experience with my show FRONT TOWARD.

Whilst this was a step in the right direction artistically, I overspent and had to rely on friends and family to keep me afloat as I moved into an accomodation for homeless veterans in Taunton.

I'm hoping that Patreon as well as other income streams, from busking and taking bookings will be sufficient to see me attain financial stability as finally I'm making enough art.

With Patreon being a subscription service, it is my intention to make it worthwhile by providing weekly updates with regards to progress, good news and plans for the future.

I'm surrounded by supportive people who wish to see me succeed with my art which speaks loudly for the victim group which I myself am a part of - veterans, whose lifelong struggle with having been institutionalised. All too frequently these people slide into the traps of poverty below the surface of modern society.

I'm developing an understanding of these issues first hand whilst doing my best to keep my head up myself. Any support is welcome.

About

Hi,

I'm George Perry, writer, performance poet and showman. Chances are that if you are here, on Patreon, reading this, that you're interested in the Art I've been making. The problem with art is that its power to influence, and therefore value, can't really be measured. There is an Artistic Valuation Latency problem. The best we have is adjectives - with no quantitative measure really seeming fit.

If you would like to support me creating more Art then please subscribe. I'll do the best I can with the money and keep you updated. (more info in the $3 a month support tier)
