I am proud to once again contribute new programming to the Workshops during the 2010 FotoFest Biennial:
BEYOND PRINT: Creative Communication in the Digital Age

“Online experts, gallery directors, museum curators, publishers and artists share their insights on the most effective ways to use today’s online tools to introduce your work to targeted audiences and to engage in meaningful community dialogue. In this one-day seminar, participants will learn how to evaluate, choose and use online tools for achieving these goals.
In this one-day seminar, participants will learn how to evaluate, choose and use the online tools that are the most effective for achieving each or all of these goals. Marketing consultant and author Mary Virginia Swanson with artist Katrina d ‘Autremont have created this NEW seminar for FotoFest to provide participants with an overview of online marketing and presentation options available today. They will discuss how to effectively integrate print and online promotional efforts.
