Questions about ArtConnected: Why is a tool like ArtConnected is important at all in the Arts?

You might also be wondering why a tool like ArtConnected is important at all in the Arts? Why do we need a concept like Entrepreneurship in the Arts?

Well to give you an idea why we think it is so important, we’ve all heard other people say or wanted to be ourself a rock star, we could play guitar, do vocals, drum but that doesn’t make one a rock star. To be a rock star it means we have to star at rock but we also have to commit to it as to our profession. By making rock our career, we need to be able to earn our living from it.

That sounds completely obvious, but is that really the case with the arts and many artistic professions? With tools like ArtConnected we hope we can make this a reality!

Questions about ArtConnected: as a practitioner who has difficulty sourcing the people I’d like working with me and my studio

Christina asked “as a practitioner who has difficulty sourcing the people I’d like working with me and my studio. How does ArtConnected help me?”

One of the basic functions of ArtConnected is to allow users to search for people or organisations working in the arts sector. ArtConnected will eventually help users to access constantly updated profiles, competences, interest and skills of each member of the Arts Sector in any geographical area for better collaboration, programming and distribution of available opportunities.

Questions about ArtConnected – Can we list our workspace on the site too?

We are starting to get some great questions about ArtConnected and what it can do for you.

Helen writes, “Can we list our workspace on the site too? I ‘d also like to update some print studio info.”

Well Helen thanks for the great question. Part of the new functionalities that we will be introducing includes the ability to list any space with a dedicated profile. At present profiles are scheduled to be available in the version.

We see profiles as being one of the main benefits as they will allow users to have calls and opportunities automatically directed to them so that you will be notified immediately of any call or opportunity that comes up based on your profile. This functionality is one of the functions that we are running the crowdfunding campaign for.

In the meantime what you can do with ArtConnected is to post any details you have about space as a call or opportunity on ArtConnected thereby increasing its visibility to the Arts community.

This can done by going to www.artconnected.ie, clicking on the button NEW CALL and entering the details under services & equipment.
