Art in a Time of Internet
Been thinking about “getting your work online” for a while, but aren’t quite sure about the best way to do it? Work in traditional media and craft practices and want to extend your reach to a broader range of communities, peers and audiences? Fully immersed in new media but don’t know how to take advantage of digital opportunities?
Last year, SAVAC partnered with Bento Miso, a collaborative, inclusive workspace, to present Art in the Time of Internet: Presenting and promoting your work online, a hands-on workshop that demonstrated how to use different publishing tools to feature your artwork online, and engage new audiences in the process.
The workshop was facilitated by Jennie and Henry Faber, Bento Miso founders with extensive experience in business and Web development, as well as bringing together communities interested in creative Web development, game design, and the good food movement.
This video series starts with a brief introduction to the underlying structure of the internet, then covers everything from domains and hosting, to content creation and social media strategy, to help you create an online portfolio that’ll make waves.
Gamma Space (previously Bento Miso) is a nonprofit coworking space for anyone working in and experimenting with games and interactive digital media. We welcome solo devs & designers, freelancers and small teams. More at gammaspace.ca
