A new journey of a nomadic series
An exhibition attempts to advance lines
Under lines of the imprinted traces of tangible memories
Under lines of the drifts before and after
Under lines of the indulgence of hearing
Under lines of the naturally formed
Under lines of the uncontrollable (re)shaping
Under lines of the adjusted sights
Under lines of the uncertainty from the semi-translucent
An united expedition on brighter days

Social media – Facebook, Instagram and other channels for two-way communication – has become a necessary part of the toolbox for anyone who wants to reach out to the public, the press and other stakeholders.

In this course, participants learn more about the singularity of these channels, and we go through what a small business (individual artist or viewing venue) can gain from good use of them. The participants further learn how to create a simple communication plan for the business in general and get good routines for the use of social media.

The emphasis is on understanding important principles for good communication in social media and acquiring the routines for applying them well – even when you have little or no staff. Everyone gets templates and other tips for simple, but useful tools for creating and publishing good material.

We also look at examples from companies both in and outside the art field and analyze why they are effective, and the participants focus on exercises with their own actual business as a case.

The course is a collaboration between VISP and Lademoen Kunstnerverksteder and is supported by Trondheim municipality.
