Today’s AIRTIME Networking Event went well, we ( 6 or 7 artists/arts organisations ) had two hours, with 20 minutes to speak to about 6 artists at each of our tables, as they rotated around the room.
It was great speaking about my work and being able to mentor artists and help point some of them in the right direction. I introduced a lot of them to twitter, and a lot of the information I was able to pass on had come from arts organisations who I follow there, aswell as various blogs, among other things.
Thanks to AIR Artists for inviting me to contribute, & thanks to Susan Jones of a-n Arts News for suggesting me. I would highly recommend an AIRTIME event if there is one near you, but you do need to be an AIR member to attend ( although at £37 per year for joint membership of AIR and a-n The Artists Information Company, which automatically gives you £5million Public Liability Insurance, it’s well worth it for any arts professional. )
