Amanda Palmer’s TED Talk – The Art of Asking

Amanda (Fucking) Palmer recently gave a TED Talk in Long Beach, California. It’s called “The Art of Asking” and it gives a fantastic insight on how she gained her fan’s trust and successfully asked for their support for her artistic and musical endeavours. The TED blog discusses her talk in detail in “Trust people to pay for music: Amanda Palmer at TED2013.”

Don’t make people pay for music, says Amanda Palmer: Let them. In a passionate talk that begins in her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan.
