Gita Joshi, curator and host of The Curator’s Salon podcast has joined forces with Meike Brunkhorst who runs factor-m, a marketing consultancy helping artists run a sustainable and successful practice.
Together they devised an easy to follow program to get #artfairready - suitable for artists already signed up to a fair as well as those still undecided.
Art fairs, artist-led fairs and pop-ups are excellent opportunities for self-respresenting artists to increase visibility for their work, grow their audience and sell directly to the public. While organisers generate attention for the event on the whole, there is a lot artists can do to optimise their own presence, increase visits to their stand and engage prospective clients.
Over a period of four weeks the course will cover subjects such as:
- What to expect from the different types of fair
- How to plan ahead to avoid feeling overwhelmed
- Best practice for promotion and mailings
- Optimise your online presence to show new and existing clients what to expect
- Learn to be confident about talking about yourself and your work
- Tips to attract visitors to your stand and make sales
The tutorials and supporting templates, exercises, checklists and cheat sheets are exclusively shared in a private group on Facebook. Gita and Meike will be on standby to answer any comments and questions and participants are encouraged to exchange experiences in a closed environment.
A premium option including a 1-to-1 session with either tutor is also available. This is ideal for artists looking for more specific advice on pricing, proof reading artist statements or other loose ends.
Course dates: 16 March – 9 April
Standard fee: £79 / VIP fee: £139
