Social Media for Social Practice Artists
This workshop delves into how change-making socially-engaged artists can increase their impact on social media by using organic content to convey their message, build awareness, connect with allies and partners, and track trends and coverage. Using examples from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and looking at posts from artists around the globe, Robin Cembalest will offer tactics for profiles, campaigns, content, hashtags, and more. All registrants will receive a recording of the workshop and workshop resources.
