SMartCAMP is the first conference of its kind focusing on the social web as it relates to the arts. In this 2 day conference, we aim to examine how various social media tools are being utilized by artists and arts organizations to communicate with audiences, build vibrant and loyal communities on an international scale, and continue to spread enthusiasm for the arts. There’s no denying that these social communication channels are quickly becoming a vital part of every organization’s outreach strategy, and savvy artists and arts orgs are taking note.
SMartCAMP is a “survey” conference spanning some of the most important topics in social media as it relates to the cultural sector. It is designed to help those who are new to or skeptical of social media put together a course of action with the help of presentations and case studies from some leading figures working at the intersection of art and social media. For those who have already been engaging in social media, SMartCAMP offers an opportunity to deepen their knowledge, hone new skills, refine social engagement strategies and gain inspiration for future social campaigns from distinguished peers and colleagues. For social media professionals looking to work with arts organizations, SMartCAMP offers an opportunity to learn about the challenges unique to the cultural space.
