Ever wondered how (and why) other artists are featured in the media? Are you confident with Social Media, Journalists and the Press?

This half-day workshop will equip you with easy, cost-free steps and behind-the-scenes tips with arts consultant and well-known media presenter, Paula Silbert and leading digital media strategist, Mel Anastas (Do Re Media). Everything you learn can be taken away and immediately put into practice.

What you'll receive:

  • Tried and tested ways to receive thousands of dollars of free media
  • Simple ways to get the best out of Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and LinkedIn
  • Essential ingredients for your next Media Release
  • What you must (and mustn’t) say to journalists
  • A step-by-step media release check-list
  • Easy ways to identify the media that’s good for you, your studio and your event
  • Guided practice and investigation on your device – or (if you don’t have one) learning and getting confident while closely watching other participants practice on theirs
  • Afternoon tea provided.
