About the presenter
Sue Edworthy is an arts manager with over 15 years experience in performing arts. She has performed, directed, stage managed, front-of-housed and event coordinated. Her main focus for the last decade has been marketing and communications, with a great deal of copywriting thrown in. Her brand is marketing heavy with a focus on social media/online communities as a way of supporting and advocating for the arts and healthy city living from the perspective of someone who had led marketing initiatives for various arts organizations, be they large, small or cross-disciplinary, as someone who cares about the city and sees the arts as a way to enrich that.
What does this have to do with your project? Everything.
By looking at and working on various types and sizes of performing arts projects, She is able to avoid the cookie-cutter approach. Sue understands and values the unique flavour you bring to your art, and that your art brings to your audience. She knows that every project is different, and every performer needs different assistance. She works with you to recognize any number of factors that will affect your production, including Where, When, Why, and How. She will work together with you to target your audience and find out the best way to let them know your project is happening. Since She has worked in many positions in the arts, she knows you probably don't have a lot of time, or money – and she doesn't believe in wasting either one.
She provides the following services:
Organizational planning; marketing project management; marketing and communications planning for projects, productions and seasons; simple website creation; social media planning, execution and maintenance; marketing, branding and social media policy creation; brand examination, review and refresh; copywriting; grant research, writing and review. She also offers workshops in fundraising and social media engagement.
Storytelling to Further the Artist... Not Just the Art
A workshop with Lisa Horvat about storytelling & social media for artists.
May 9th 2012 7 – 9:30pm
Since the dawn of time, humans have been using stories to connect. Storytelling is what binds us together as a species, it is what links us in our communities. Today, we unwittingly use storytelling everyday in our social interactions. But, we often leave this powerful tool at the door when we enter our professional environments or when we do use stories we often don't maximize their potential.
In this presentation we'll talk about the power of storytelling, how we can find our stories and express them offline and especially online.
