About the event

The Space, in association with Arts Council England, present a free webinar for arts organisations and artists who want to know how to extend the reach and impact of their work using online distribution. While the workshop is primarily focused on performance organisations and artists, it may also be of interest to artist and organisations who are sharing content which includes talks, Q&As etc.

From your own website or Instagram to finding potential partners, how do you decide where to focus your efforts? Whether you want to share new content or offering the best of existing work to an audience online, our speakers will offer ideas, guidance and some fundamental do’s and don’ts.

We’ll cover:

  • Distribution options: what’s available, and how will you decide what works for you?
  • How to create impact in the crowded online space.
  • Making the best of your own social media channels.
  • What to think about in a distribution plan.
  • Tips and tricks to make chosen platforms work for you.
