Take part in a practical, 10-minute workshop and learn how to improve your social media usage with Monika Gravagno of Facciocose. Facciocose is a London-based Physical Theatre Company who offer creative mentoring programmes, encouraging creative, innovative and sustainable businesses and empowering creative careers. Social media is an important tool that has the potential to help you generate sales, grow your business and share your artist practice. For this workshop, Monika has developed a Content Strategy Plan which will guide you in identifying your audience, setting objectives, creating interesting content and optimizing your use of hashtags. Bow Arts seeks to support creative professionals at all stages of their careers. In 2015 Bow Arts launched Bow Skills in response to an artist survey which showed over 90% of practicing artists find it useful to receive further support outside formal education. Bow Skills is a dynamic and relevant programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) which is informed by an artist steering group and open to all creative practitioners across London. The programme of talks, panel discussions, new skills labs and peer crits is open to all, with concession rates available to Bow Arts artists and students. As our Bow Skills 2020 Event Programme is currently on hold due to the Covid-19 health crisis, we will instead be releasing some top tips from our session leaders online. Bow Skills Online is a new series of free online training videos for the arts community. These short videos will offer actionable tips and tricks for different aspects of creative practice development, all achievable in the safety of your own home.
