Digital technology has a great deal to offer artists, but mastering the medium can be hard work – especially given the pace of change. This free, interactive workshop is designed to equip you with some useful tips and tools.
The evening kicks off with Terry O’Reilly, host of Under the Influence on CBC radio. He'll talk about how to promote yourself and your art with storytelling in the age of digital, and then answer your questions – live!
Then we'll move on to an overview of existing and emerging digital tools – including the Island’s new artfinds.me app. Plus you’ll get access to useful how-to videos such as digitizing art, creating meaningful content and understanding copyright.
LOGIN TO THIS LIVE EVENT WHEREVER YOU ARE
We’re excited to offer this meeting online so that you can join us from anywhere - your office, couch or campsite. This easy-to-use online webinar system lets you engage with other viewers, participate in polls and discussions, and even ask questions during question periods. You can also choose to just sit back and watch and listen.
NO FANCY TECHNOLOGY REQUIRED
Here’s what you need to participate and have a great viewing experience:
> a modern and up-to-date browser (we recommend Chrome or Firefox)
> a reliable internet connection (hardwired is better than wifi)
> earbuds, headphones or good computer speakers
> your mic and webcam turned off (easy to do in Crowdcast). You can turn them on again if you want to ask a question (mic) or get up on stage with Terry (video and mic)!
NOTE: Apple users can also download the iOs app to their iPad or iPhone.
