I’m doing three free or low cost workshops in the next few weeks.
#1 How to get press
On May 5 Marisa Mazria Katz (Creative Time Reports) and I will be doing the next free Center for Artistic Activism webinar.
Why should you do it?
We’ve all been there: you’ve done a brilliant, funny, creative action but no one except some passersby and a handful of your Facebook friends have any idea it happened. Or maybe worse yet, you get some press coverage but the journalist completely missed the point. Well, we’re here to help. We’re bringing in the press expert Marisa Mazria Katz who will help us all understand how and when to connect with the press, how to communicate yourself and your campaign, how to write a great pitch or op-ed, and, very importantly, what NOT to do. Join us!
#2 & #3 Putting Your Skills to Work for Social Change
C4AA Board Chair, Patricia Jerido, Stephen Duncombe and I will be running a two part workshop for national arts organization, Creative Capital. You’re welcome to sign up for the first part or both.
Part A: FREE Webinar: Putting Your Skills to Work for Social Change, with Steve Lambert & Patricia Jerido
Wednesday, April 26, 7:00-8:30pm EST
“This free webinar gives practical guidelines on how to be an effective and resilient creative agent for social change. The webinar leaders, who have over 25 years of combined experience training people to plan and implement actions, will show how artists can best lend their expertise and perspectives to campaigns and movements that create real change in the world.”
Part B: Artistic Activism: Making Art Work
Thursday, May 4, 6:30-9:15 pm
Creative Capital Offices in Lower Manhattan
“Discover how you can use your creative practice to organize communities, and make more engaging and impactful artworks. Through a series of local and international grass-roots case studies, you will learn the basics of cultural, cognitive, and behavioral theory that will help you move audiences from exposure to action. With hands-on exercises designed to give the necessary experience to make more affective and effective artwork, you will feel more confident in applying creative powers to reach social-change goals and more connected to local and global traditions of socially engaged art.”
