“Content” has become a household word in the realm of social media, and the pressure for artists to make lots of it is certainly high. Beyond the need for quantity, the quality of content has become even more important as algorithms determine a race for the top of the news feed. In this session, participants will discuss best practices for making, posting, and sharing content in a way that engages and promotes new followers.

This mentor-led Zoom session is part of the Digital Marketing and Social Media Accelerator program hosted by Creative Manitoba and Manitoba Music. The program is designed to offer skills and useful tools to DIY artists and arts administrators who are looking for promotional guidance in areas they need improvement. Each session will be one hour long, offered on three different days and times in order to accommodate varying schedules, and groups will be made up of no more than 10 participants in order to promote discussion, connection, and concentrated learning.

Participants must be a Creative Manitoba and/or Manitoba Music member, and may sign up for one, or all of the sessions. Registration is limited, on a first-come, first-served basis.

To register, please fill out this form before Sunday, May 24, at 11:59 CST.
