The Brussels Paper

<p> The Brussels Paper project is being launched to create a print newspaper for the international community in Brussels. To make this happen, we want to publish a 24-page pilot issue in October 2012 and develop a prototype app. We need your help to make this happen. </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://i.imgur.com/ZmOHU.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://imgur.com/ZmOHU.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> So what is this newspaper going to be about? First of all, it will cover news stories in the capital of Europe and provide a forum for opinion and debate. But it will also encourage its community of readers to come together to explore, celebrate, taste, touch and understand the international city of Brussels.</p> <p> So we will take you here -</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://i.imgur.com/GJAWC.jpg%20" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/GJAWC.jpg%20"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> And we will be talking about this -</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://i.imgur.com/BNygY.jpg%20" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/BNygY.jpg%20"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> And we will be telling you how to get here - </p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://i.imgur.com/WTQH1.jpg" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://imgur.com/WTQH1.jpg"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> And we will reveal where you can find this -</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://i.imgur.com/CL3mJ.jpg%20" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/CL3mJ.jpg%20"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> We want The Brussels Paper to serve as a powerful voice for the international community, to encourage expats to become expactivists and to help develop the multinational and creative potential of Brussels.</p> <p> Are you in?</p> <p>  </p>

À quoi servira la collecte

<p> It costs a lot to print a newspaper. It would be much cheaper just to go digital. But we believe in the beauty of paper and the power of the printed newspaper.</p> <p> We want to see the paper here -</p> <p>  </p> <p> <a href="http://i.imgur.com/X1WDf.jpg%20" target="_blank"><img alt="" src="http://i.imgur.com/X1WDf.jpg%20"></a></p> <p>  </p> <p> We have to pay journalists and photographers, hire a designer, rent a coworking space for one week, print 20,000 copies, distribute the paper across town, run an online campaign, launch a website and design a prototype app. If you want to see the hard figures, we need €4000 to pay for printing, €1000 to cover distribution and publicity, €1500 to pay writers and photographers, €1500 to hire a designer and €1000 to rent office space. Can we do it?</p> <p>  </p>
