An artist’s bio is often the first piece of information to reach audience members and collectors.
Your bio is important for your website, social media, retailers, galleries, grant applications, market applications and press releases. The key is to continually update it and have different versions for varying platforms. In this workshop we will read, learn from and discuss a few examples of artist bios.
Participants will have a chance to engage in a dialogue on their own questions and doubts about writing their bios.
We will use free writing prompts to get us started on writing our bios and go over tips for best practices.
May 14, 2020 between the hours of 04:00 and 06:00 p.m. To register, please visit here.
About Bronx Council On The Arts
Founded by visionary community leaders in 1962, the Bronx Council on the Arts (BCA) is dedicated to advancing cultural equity in Bronx. From creative placemaking and arts advocacy to the provision of services for artists and arts organizations, as well as programming for children and seniors, BCA was the first organization in Bronx to focus equally on supporting local artists, serving the community, and catalyzing relationships between the two.
Since its founding, BCA has focused on the work of underrepresented groups, especially artists of color, women, and members of the LGBTQ community. We provide direct services to over 1,000 artists and 250 community-based arts groups each year, and thanks to our granting programs, we are able to touch the lives of over thousands of audience members.
