May You Live in Interesting Times

22 October 2009, 1-4pm, Firstspace, Chapter Arts Centre, Cardiff

As part of May You Live in Interesting Times, Festival of Creative Technology, Chapter and WARP are organising two further seminars as part of The Centre is Here. The seminars will focus attention on the professional development of artists in Wales. This time The Centre is Here aims to offer artists the opportunity to hear first-hand a range of arts professionals talk about professional practice in the digital era. Each of the seminars will have a specific theme related to how artists can best use online, digital and creative technologies to develop and promote their work. Topics will include the use of social networking sites, artistsʼ blogs, websites, digital portfolios and show reels.

Social Networking: This seminar will look at how artists can use social networking as a tool for the promotion of their practice and the creation of online artistic communities. It will also focus on the uses of these networks as places to generate new work, and to exhibit work to a wider public.

Speakers are: Martin John Callanan & Emily Speed
