In May Frame and AV-arkki are hosting two art media experts; Steph Kretowicz from AQNB and Caroline Heron from Video in Common in London. They will hold a workshop on the 24th May at Frame’s office in Helsinki.
In the workshop Kretowicz and Heron will introduce their own practices within online communication and introduce different ways artists and art organisations can use the online space for making, exhibiting and discussing art.
The workshop is aimed at art professionals from critics to galleries and artists, and it will be tailored according to the participants and their needs and wishes. The workshop is meant to encourage creative, varied and effective ways of using the internet in different art contexts.
The workshop is free of charge and will be held in English. You can apply by emailing Frame’s programme coordinator Maikki Lavikkala at firstname.lastname@example.org by April 23rd.
Please attach in your email a short description in English of yourself/your organisation and why you are interested in taking part in the workshop; what challenges or successes have you experienced with online communication? We will consider these answers and wishes when selecting the participants and planning the workshop structure. We will notify all applicants of the selection by April 28th.
