Social media workshop available
for artists and cultural groups
Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Pinterest, Instagram… where to begin? For artists and cultural organizations looking for ways to increase their profile and engage with and grow their audiences, the rise of social media has been a boon to those that understand how to use these tools … and a baffling minefield for those that aren’t sure how to proceed.
If you count yourself in the latter category, you are invited to attend Social Media 101, a three-hour workshop offered at the Richmond Cultural Centre on Tuesday, February 18 from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m.
This workshop is part of Metro Vancouver’s popular “Survivor 101: The Next Generation” series, created especially for community arts organizations. If you are a staff member, board member, volunteer, performer, artist, start-up visionary, or someone in charge of a community arts organization, these workshops are for you.
At this session, Kirstin Richter of The Social Agency will define social media, introduce the benefits and statistics of the most popular social media platforms, provide a list of what to do (and what not to do) and describe some case studies of successful campaigns.
The price for participant is $20, with refreshments included. Pre-registration is required: visit www.metrovancouver.org/region/Survivor101 for details.
