Kickstarter announces Danny Baez as new Head of Arts
In April 2023, Kickstarter announced the appointment of Danny Baez as its new Head of Arts. In this new role, he will oversee the visual and performing arts categories, working closely with artists, collectives, arts organizations, museums, and cultural institutions around the world to help them realize creative and ambitious ideas.
With more than 15 years of arts industry experience, Danny has built a reputation for his community-focused, artist-first approach and work to create a more equitable and diverse art ecosystem. He’ll bring this same energy and focus to Kickstarter, using his expertise to expand on the company’s efforts to connect artists and organizations with a global community of supporters to help them achieve their goals. To date, over 39,000 artistic projects have raised nearly $290 million on Kickstarter across the art, dance, photography, and theater categories.
