Francisca/AVO Magazine
A message from the Editor-in-Chief of AVO Magazine, Francisca Every day in my free time I am active with updating my website AVO Magazine with articles about Japan, especially about Japanese music. I share announcements of tours and shows, interviews, reports and reviews. I publish such articles in two languages: Dutch and English. I do most alone, but I am very happy to get support from those who love to write (and/or translate) as well. Not only I do the writing part, I also am the contact person for the social media an email, plus the promotion. In the past, I could stand with a booth at conventions to promote AVO. This way people could see who was behind the AVO community. As this costs a lot of time and money, I have chosen not to do that as often anymore. Nowadays I mostly go to events as reporter or ask one of my writers to do that. Next to writing articles, I organise a few concerts in the Netherlands a year of Japanese (indie) artists. I don't earn any money with it, as it is a difficult world and I think the musicians need the money. (if you have advice how I can make it a paying job, please let me know) But this is all what I love, my passion, to do in my free time, and that I want to keep on doing in my free time. It is my passion! On 15 September 2018, I could - in collaboration with the venue - organise a music festival titled AVO J-Music Festival. Your support through really meant a lot to me! Thanks to your support I could buy a better lay-out that can handle the multilangual function. (it got to 98% thanks to you!) But your support will also be used to pay the bills for the hosting to keep the websites online! As I say for years: every Euro counts! From now on I will say the following: every coffee counts! And that is good news, as I LOVE coffee! Please read this interview of last year to get a better picture of AVO and my work: +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ You can follow me and AVO here: AVO Magazine: Personal:
