Carclew Youth Arts in partnership with the Adelaide Festival Centre delivered a two day forum where ideas for arts practice were grown and cultivated collectively.
Featuring two workshops and two panels over 29 and 30 October, this forum provided the opportunity for artists and arts administrators to participate in various discussions across areas of business, value and marketing.
Telling Your Story – Arts Marketing Workshop
Your marketing informs your audience about what they will be expecting to see long before you present your art to them. Take the time to make sure you are telling your story effectively to your audience and make sure they are listening. Be guided through the skills of great publicity, marketing, digital media and sponsorship for your arts project.
