About this Event

A Big House Event supported by Real Creative Futures Digital

Please note: If you have already accessed 12 or more hours of support from The Big House, you may be placed on a waiting list and your place is not guaranteed until you receive confirmation from The Big House Events Team.

This is part of a series of 3 workshops. Please check you are available to take part in all workshops before signing up.

WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In this final online workshop delivered by Patricia van den Akker of The Design Trust we will focus on virtual or digital events. Many exhibitions, fairs and festivals have gone online in the last year. How do you adapt?

This session is aimed at visual and performing creatives who want to take part in these virtual events or who are planning to do online events. This session will also be useful for creatives who want to learn more about using video more confidently to present yourself, and how to get more confident in front of the camera.

• How to apply, promote and sell yourself and your work successfully at these virtual events?

• How to organise your own online event or use virtual opportunities to connect with your potential audience and clients? From webinars and zoom meetings to FB and IG live.

• How to get more confident in front of the camera?

Patricia will be sharing how event organisers have embraced online opportunities this last year and how you can use your own (mobile phone) camera and computer screen too to present yourself and your work.

This session will be recorded. There is a max. of 100 live participants. You will get a reminder one day and one hour prior to this session.

HOW THESE ONLINE WORKSHOPS WILL WORK:

You need to register for each individual session on Zoom and you will then get immediately a confirmation email in your inbox. Make sure you check your spam folder and that you have spelled your email address correctly. One day and one hour prior to the live session you will get a reminder email. Use the link or button in any of these emails to connect to the live session.

These will be Zoom webinars, so you will be able to hear Patricia and see the presentation, which you will get access to after the session. You can ask questions via the chat option or the Q&A.

You do not need any special equipment such as a headset. We recommend that you will join us from a desktop or laptop computer (either PC or Mac are fine). You can join us from tablets (such as ipads) or phones too but then often the slides are too small to see properly, and often the older models have problems to send texts.

We will make these sessions as interactive and practical as possible. Bring pen & paper so that you can make notes and also create your own action plans.

HOW DO I BOOK TICKETS?

This event is free, but space is limited. You must be enrolled with The Big House and/or RCF-D. Space is limited, so make sure to book your ticket today to guarantee your place.

PLEASE NOTE: The Big House events are free to you, because they are funded – however there is a cost attached to them for us and we are a not-for-profit organisation. So, if you have registered to come, your place will have been paid for. Our events are very popular and we often have a waiting list. With this in mind, if for any reason you are unable to attend it is very important that you cancel your ticket on Eventbrite as soon as possible, to enable someone else to take your place.

If you have already accessed 12 or more hours of support you may be placed on a waiting list - your place is not guaranteed until you receive confirmation from RCF-D Team.
