Time: 12:00 – 16:00
Venue: Lademoen kunstnerverksteder, physical attendance
For whom: Artists and small galleries

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.

Are you an artist or producer of exhibitions? Then you are also a communicator. It might be a strong statement, but the fact is that art needs to be conveyed to reach the desired audience.

Our dream is that art will create groundbreaking headlines in the media and that our Instagram accounts will abound with dedicated followers. Can you think of three things at once: Art, social media (SoMe) and the press?

This course is about how you as an artist or small exhibition space can easily and effectively build and use a SoME profile to show art and market what you are passionate about. We will look at what it takes to make the press interested in your art.

Without communicating your art, no one has any idea what’s going on in your studio or gallery. What can you do about it?

This is what you will learn:

  • Mechanisms for effective communication and marketing in social meda channels, with the main emphasis on Instagram and Facebook.
  • Dialogue: The inherent nature and power of the SoMe channels.
  • How to use and build a good SoMe profile.
  • How to work to get media attention about art.

Course leader

Communicator, historian, author and podcaster Unni Irmelin Kvam has for many years worked with communication for various cultural institutions such as KODE, the University of Oslo, the Natural History Museum and the Vigeland Museum in Oslo. In 2021, the Vigeland Museum’s Instagram account was named “One to Watch” by the New York Times. She shares her best tricks for creating a SoMe profile, how to enter into a dialogue with followers and create a tone that makes you still get attention about what is most important in the world: art.

Guest

Øyvind Rongevær Kvarme is an educated art historian and educator. Currently working with dissemination and communication at Trondheim Art Museum, as well as leading various projects and curating exhibitions. Formerly, he has worked freelance as a writer and critic, and been involved in the Heimdal Kunstforening. Kvarme sits on the board of the Norwegian Art Associations and is a member of the Norwegian Curators’ Association. On this course he will share Trondheim Kunstmuseums strategy on social media, and talk about how they work to reach their audience and how they collaborate with exhibiting artists.
