The Springfield Regional Arts Council (SRAC) is pleased to present “Social Media for the Arts: Beyond the Bulletin Board,” a workshop for artists and arts organizations at The Creamery Arts Center on Wednesday, February 19, 2014 from 5:30pm-7:00pm.
Go “beyond the bulletin board” with speaker Ron Spigelman, Director of Development and Marketing at Springfield Little Theatre (SLT), as he shares simple and straightforward techniques that can be implemented to unlock the true potential of social media.
“Whether an organization or an individual artist, these techniques apply equally,” says Spigelman, who promises an interactive workshop in which he will reveal how SLT has increased its Facebook likes by more than 120 per month for the past two years.
SRAC is proud to offer this workshop as a part of the third annual season of Speaking of the Arts (SOTA), a professional development series of workshops for artists and arts organizations in the 27-county region the SRAC serves. The series brings in area experts to lecture on trends, best practices, and resources to encourage our arts community to continue to thrive and enhance overall economic and cultural development.
All SOTA workshops are provided free of charge to SRAC members. Non-members are asked to pay $10 per workshop or are encouraged to join SRAC for only $25 per year. Support for SOTA is provided by the Community Foundation of the Ozarks and the Missouri Arts Council, a state agency.
