Learn How to Brand Yourself like a Pro: Join us for April’s #ArtistHotline

On April 20, 9:30 AM to 5:30 PM, our Twitter account is all ears to your art-related questions. Use the hashtag #ArtistHotline and join the conversation.

Our mission here at NYFA is to support all artists  to become successful and fulfilled professionals. We know you have the creativity and tenacity to create great artwork, but what about the business side of your practice? Do you know how to write grants, or how to present a balanced budget to funders? Are you taking full advantage of your social media channels? What about your brand? If all these questions made you nervous, take a deep breath.

NYFA is here to help. As an extension of our online resources for artists, NYFA hosts an Artist Professional Development Day on Twitter every third Wednesday of the month. The best part of it: it’s free! All you need is a Twitter account. To participate, send us your questions, experience, or feedback for other artists using the hashtag #ArtistHotline.

Click here to learn how to best take advantage of the day.

Artists: If you don’t already have a Twitter account, create a free one now and include the hashtag #ArtistHotline in your related tweets and questions. Follow @nyfacurrent for updates.

Arts Organizations: If you’re interested in partnering with us for this initiative, learn more and sign up here.

Follow the hashtag #ArtistHotline and see you on April 20!

Inspired by the NYFA Source Hotline, #ArtistHotline is dedicated to creating an ongoing online conversation around the professional side of artistic practice. #ArtistHotline occurs on the third Wednesday of each month on Twitter. Our goal is to help artists discover the resources needed, online and off, to develop sustainable careers. This initiative is supported by the Emily Hall Tremaine Foundation.
