Bright Ink Mobile Bookshop

Project 2020-11-05 15:30:00 +1300

Bright Ink is a mobile bookshop and creative space for the community in Queenstown, New Zealand.

 

The bookshop: By selling secondhand books from our van, we hope to extend the joy of reading and encourage gifting carefully selected pre-loved books. We know there are people out there (maybe you?) looking for a place to get lost in a sea of books in an environment where you are truly welcome and in fact, encouraged to hang around looking for just the right tale. Whether it be by smell, cover or first chapter we want you to find that next great read. Bookworms, goofballs and misfits you have found your haven. 

 

 

The creative space: Collaboration is key. We will work with local artists to sell their work and promote their visions. We plan to hold spoken poetry sessions, guest speaker engagements and workshops. Our mission is to enhance the art culture within the region and provide a wider platform for local artists to express and share their artwork. 

 

 


How will your contribution be spent? 

Your donation will help us renovate our regular ol’ van into a bookshop on wheels. With your help we will be adding a high top roof, converting the walls into bookshelves and creating a cosy space for reading, browsing and chatting. We will also be stocking our shelves for our opening day with your help.

Thank you for your support and please get in touch with any questions at [email protected] We are looking forward to you being a part of our creative community!

Natasya and Annie

 

 

 

This project is dedicated to all of you out there who have encouraged us to follow our dreams especially our motivators Natacha Murphy and James Kuek and our support/cheerleading crew Ikhwan Eusof and Nico Mastracci.

Hello, pledgers! 

 

It is with great joy we write to you about the impact of your pledges. As many other successful campaigners, we are absolutely lost for words, however, thrilled to announce pledges are now confirmed as we hit the minimum target three days before the closing date of our campaign. We have been completely blown away by the extensive support and love that everyone has given and shown us throughout this journey. We sincerely thank you for catapulting us to the next stage in the Bright Ink journey. Thank you 🤎

 

 

Much love, 

Annie & Natasya

We Can't Seem To Stop Thanking You

Howdy Pledgers!

 

We’re on the edge of our seats because our campaign closes in FOUR days! Time flies but we’re hopeful we will reach our goal and that is all thanks to YOU! We are so thrilled to have your support.

 

While you're telling everyone you know about our campaign (wink wink), we thought you'd like to meet the newest member of Bright Ink - our Nissan Caravan! 

 

Our van is from a local couple who bought it with plans to travel all around New Zealand. We are honored to continue the legacy of keeping it on the road, just with a different purpose. Now... what should we name it?!

 

WE HIT $5K!

04/12/2020 at 4:20 PM

We hit $5,000, yay! It is a happy Friday indeed as we are close to hit the minimum target. There are truly no words to express of how grateful we are by your generous support. We are overwhelmed by the love, kindness and encouragement everyone has given us. Thank you so much!

Raised More Than Half Min Target Within 24 Hours - Thank You!

22/11/2020 at 11:27 PM

We have raised more than half of min target amount within 24 hours of our campaign being live. That is massive! Thank you so much for your support and contribution! Like said in the video, it is because of LEGENDS like you that we are able to do the work that we do. We really appreciate the time you've taken to support. THANK YOU for believing in us! Love, Bright Ink.
