About Social Media and Marketing: Choosing the tools you need and letting go of the rest
With Julie Fossitt
Digital access offers an incredible opportunity for artists to document and demonstrate one’s creative process and product to the world. As an individual artist, your brand encompasses not only one's work, but one's vast online presence.
Does your digital footprint encourage connection and access across geography, language, gender, and culture? Can you separate yourself from art in a digital age? How can you connect your art with consumers and audiences online and beyond?
This workshop will explore these questions and will offer a snapshot of best practices and pitfalls for artists with the purpose to help share personal brand storytelling and identify the best tools to reach target audiences.
