Facilitated by A. Nia Austin-Edwards, Founder of PURPOSE Productions

Who you be? What are you sharing? And why on earth should anyone care?

More than cheap sales tactics and marketing buzz words, this workshop will offer tools and strategies for PURPOSE-fully telling YOUR story and connecting your work to community and audiences. Great for artists, organizations, & independent producers alike, depart the session with a deeper understanding of how to develop strategic marketing practices that best fit your work and are in alignment with your broader value systems.

This shared space and time will offer a rich investigation where we can question, challenge, sample, and share past approaches and methodologies. Feel free to bring in anything from a mission statement to bio to any marketing materials you might be having trouble with. Exercise your expertise and incorporate your lens as we work together to think about marketing.

This workshop is part of FAB’s year-long series, The Sustainable Artist Toolkit.
