Building your digital toolbox for LGBTQ2S+ artists
November 30 @ 12:00 pm PST
NOTE: This event has been rescheduled. We’ll inform you of the new date and time soon!
This fall, the West Kootenay Regional Arts Council is hosting a series of workshops to help you effectively showcase your creative work and build a more sustainable practice.
Join Heidi Nagtegaal and Jenny Lee Craig* for a conversation about the top online tools that can help your artistic business flourish. This workshop will cover setting up successful social media channels, strategies for audience engagement and managing your digital to-do list. This is an all-abilities-friendly session that will leave you with greater confidence when selling your work online, even if capitalism makes you cringe.
This event is free and takes place virtually on Wednesday, November 30 at noon Pacific / 1 p.m. Mountain.
REGISTER HERE: coming soon!
*Centre Center is an umbrella organization that is owned by no one, but tended by Jenny Lee Craig and Heidi Nagtegaal, focusing on third spaces, underground spaces and the alternative arts spaces outside of the artist-run-centre model.
We’re not looking to create something new because other things are bad. We want to make kinder networks, supportive networks and resources for sharing, to activate our collective strength. We want to overlap with things that are already in action because we are stronger together.
Drawing from nature, Centre Center sees the arts as a form of an ecological intersection from all kinds of cultural spaces, classes, experiences, lifestyles and ways of being. Oftentimes, our artistic experience is separated by these differences, and Centre Center aims to be a support network to bridge the gaps between organizations, people and culture.
You can’t build culture past what you have, and to work with different people and different ways of being is the way to move forward, and to build more than what you could bring on your own. Diversity and inclusivity are the only generative way forward, and that means opening up to ideas and ways of being that may seem foreign to you.
