Monday 25 November
6:30PM to 8:30PM
Central Branch – Kingston Frontenac Public Library

 

Kingston Arts Council presents Event Marketing for Artists, a Platform Workshop for Professional Development in the Arts.

Join Steph Brown, a long time senior marketer of Kingston for a crash course on how to market your art event online. Steph will provide you with multiple, easy-to-use digital tools to help you market and sell your events, targeted specifically to artists and arts organization. Bring your laptop, this will be a hands-on experiential learning opportunity. (Please have an active Facebook account to participate).

Artists and arts workers producing and presenting professional programming do not often have the budget to invest in professional marketing tools or consulting. This workshop aims at providing participants with realistic, time and cost-effective tools and strategies that will allow them to grow their reach and audience, and ultimately to run more successful events.
