Idea Exchange from NAMAC

This is a neat model of connecting artists–check it out this week!

The National Alliance for Media Arts and Culture is pleased to announce that we will be holding a blog salon, Networking Artists: Rethinking Artist Services in the 21st Centuryfrom May 23rd – May 27th.

New media technologies have dramatically changed the way artists connect, produce and share their work. Social networking platforms and video hosting websites like YouTube have made it easier than ever for artists to build relationships and exhibit work across global networks. The many opportunities that come with this new digital economy based on sharing free work present new challenges for artists and the organizations that serve them. How can artists get paid their work? With the abundance of free content, how do artists connect with each other and engage with audiences? What role do organizations play as networkers, curators and advocates?
For one week, artists and arts leaders will dialogue about artist services as it’s being practiced today. Each leader has invited artists who work with their organization to join the salon. We are hoping to create a dynamic conversation that will start at and echo throughout the media arts community.
