MHz Curationist : Building a Sustainable Payment Structure for Arts & Culture Contributors - Grant Study


We are thrilled to have been selected as a Grantee in 2020 amongst so many fantastic projects, as we explore options for paying the authors on our platform who contribute their perspectives on global topics of arts and culture.

We look forward to using this community platform for Web Monetization to exchange and learn from others looking to make strides in this area of interest.

Our Grant Reporting Goals:

Over the course of the next 5 months, our team is mobilized to create a Study Report that will be built upon a series of four (4) Mini Reports identified as follows:

1: Stating the Challenge
2: Market Research
3: Monetization Explorations
4: Conclusions & Next Steps

We invite you all to comment, and exchange with us as we share our findings.
