Traditional Arts Indiana’s final webinar of 2012 will offer a common-sense approach to using websites as information- and publicity-generating tools. The talk is scheduled for Friday, Dec. 14, at 3 p.m.
In this informal webinar, TAI director Jon Kay will talk about some reasons an artist/musician/community scholar might want to have a website. Beyond the retail-hype (although the financial side will be covered), this workshop will help artists decide if an online presence is right for them.
Jon will talk through the basic levels of online presence and how to choose the right approach for you. This workshop recognizes that there is not one correct answer, but rather a handful of strategies for beginning an online journey (or not). As a musician himself, and host of the “Artisan Ancestors” podcast, Jon knows how to leverage the Internet to highlight the work of a traditional artist.
As always, this webinar is free and open to the public. To join, participants should access a computer with working speakers or headphones and navigate to http://breeze.iu.edu/tai_webinars on Friday, Dec. 14 at 3 p.m.* Afterward, participants will be able to access a recording of the webinar to review or catch up on anything they may have missed.
