Alchemy NFK and the Push Comedy Theater will unite Tuesday, April 1, 2014 from 6-9 pm for “Kickstart Norfolk,” an online-only fundraising effort featuring live music, comedy and art. With the help of local advertising agency Sway Creative Labs, the pair of Norfolk Arts District businesses will hold one of the area’s first “web-a-thons.” The group will leverage Google Hangouts On Air technology to broadcast a variety show that highlights some of Norfolk’s finest young talent in real time. Viewers will be able to stream the event live at www.kickstartnorfolk.com
The three-hour program will benefit Kickstarter campaigns for both Alchemy NFK and The Pushers Comedy Group. Kickstarter is a crowd-funding website that enables entrepreneurs to reach their all-or-nothing fundraising goals by offering backers exclusive rewards and experiences in exchange for their donations. If successful, The Pushers plan to renovate a 90-seat comedy theater for live improv and standup acts, while Alchemy NFK hopes to upgrade its facilities into a functioning creative community center complete with artist spaces and a photography lab.
