The Artist Online


Description: An artist’s single strongest tool is a network of friends, collaborators, and organizations which create a community of support. As artists with limited time and budgets, we need smart strategies for building and nurturing community. The internet offers many social tools to create and nurture a supportive network, while also providing innovative ways to generate revenue.

Objective: The goal is for participants to leave this workshop with a simple marketing plan that includes one new community-building or sales strategy that can be implemented immediately.
