Summertime, and the Tweetin’ is Easy…with #ArtistHotline!

Summertime, and the Tweetin’ is Easy…with #ArtistHotline!

In between your picnics, backyard barbecues, and trips to the beach, prep your questions for #ArtistHotline on July 20, 9:30 AM – 5:30 PM.  

Just last summer, we kicked off #ArtistHotline, a monthly Professional Development Day for artists. We’ve enjoyed seeing this initiative grow and are looking forward to another year of great conversations! Every third Wednesday, artists, consultants, and arts organizations from coast to coast (and from across the pond) take to Twitter to share resources, build their networks, and ask questions about the Business of Art.

Are you wondering how to land commercial representation, find a writer’s group, or build a stellar website? Are you just plain stumped by grant eligibility guidelines? Well, there’s no need to worry. Grab your computer or nearest mobile device, and participate on July 20 by including the hashtag #ArtistHotline in each tweet!

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.
