This CAS Social discussion and workshop session will explore the website presence of artists and is suitable for CAS Associates who are planning a new websites or put existing ones to good use.
7pm: Artist websites review and discussion, what are the challenges and uses of an artists web presence? Does your website fulfil one of the 3 main types and functions?
7.30pm Case studies: what’s working and what’s not. Submit your website for a review by Susan (curator perspective) and Maija (engagement perspective) by emailing us the URL and the purpose of your website.
8pm Workshop: is your website working for you and how can you improve it? You’ll use a worksheet to identify what website solutions are useful to you, and what’s not, and take home a cheatsheet of common problems and solutions so you don’t waste hours on website fixes.
Associates peer-support session for growing your practice/career
Use this CAS Social Thursday to bring and share project ideas and challenges for discussion and development, kind of like an artists CRIT but for your practice and career. Featuring case studies of generating opportunities, for example how Cicatrix got from a one woman project to become a multi-artist international touring show with 10 exhibitions in four years.
7pm – 7.30pm We will open with an informal discussion – each artist will summarise their current practice challenges and aspirations.
7.30 – 8.00pm – Case studies and discussion (if you have a case study you’d like to share and celebrate ping us an email)
8pm – 9pm – two artists will be selected to present a project idea designed to move their practice and career forward, and gain feedback and support from the group. To express interest in this opportunity for group feedback please send an outline of your challenge, aspiration and idea to firstname.lastname@example.org
