To get a taste of some of that, come to an exclusive party hosted by Flattr and The Drum. The party, to be held on Tuesday March 13, will pay homage to the power of creatives.

Swedish-based Flattr, a platform for artists and creators, offers an automatic and effortless way for creators to make money from their online content and for fans to give back to the creators they love.

A passionate advocate for fostering and supporting creative talent with exposure, accessibility and financial reward, Flattr believes the creativity of the internet needs to be nourished and the only way this can be achieved is by rewarding the writers, musicians, storytellers and videographers who have dedicated their craft to making the world better for us.

Flattr will host and create an exhibition at The Drum Speakeasy and also include a night of music and mixology. Attendees to the exclusive party will need a password to get in.

Speaking about the event, Linus Olsson, co-founder and product manager at Flattr said: "At Flattr, we believe in a better internet, and in supporting the people who make the internet awesome. We think direct contributions are the way forward, with the Swedish idea of “many small streams form a large river” guiding our philosophy. Join us for our part in Austin to learn more how you as a creator can use Flattr to earn money without any extra-effort. Oh, and also join us for drinks and icecream!"

The event, Flattr Yourself, will take place on Tuesday March 13 in Austin. RSVP here to receive the password for your exclusive invite.
