TEAL is Back! With a Lunch & Learn on Audience Building on 9/23

11694064_10153580657021495_1207117681964864248_nTriangle Emerging Arts Leaders, that group of young (or young at heart) folks working in the arts in the Triangle has taken a bit of a hiatus.  But its BACK!

We are bringing back TEAL’s popular lunches, but adding a new element.  Its easier to get away from the office when you are learning something…right!  So, each TEAL lunch will now have a discussion topic and a discussion leader from the Triangle arts community. As always, TEAL lunch is also just a great time for networking and discussion of general issues facing arts leaders.

Here’s the info on this month’s lunch:

TEAL September Lunch and Learn

This month’s topic:

“How to build an audience – through social media,
collaborations & other crazy ideas”

img_0281Leading the discussion will be G. Todd Buker, Artistic Director of Bare Theatre. Commonly referred to as a “vagabond” company, Bare is a Triangle-based company that does not own its own stage/theater (which saves a lot of money!). In the last 5 years, the company has grown its audience tremendously through crowdfunding, social media, and collaborations that have enabled them to pay the artists involved! Todd will begin the discussion with a short talk on the topic and then open the floor for group discussion. Come ready to share stories on what has worked or what hasn’t for you, and to learn from each other.

Here are the details:
Where: RTP Frontier, Dive Conference room, 3rd floor
When: Friday, September 23
Schedule:
11:30      RTP Food truck rodeo opens in the Frontier parking lot. So, grab lunch there (come early, there will be lines!) or just bring a brown bag lunch!
12:00     Discussion begins
1:00        Official ending of discussion, feel free to stay and chat!

Who should attend?

  • Anyone trying to build an audience, customer base, whatever … and looking for new ideas on how to build a community around and support for the work you are doing.
  • Anyone who wants to meet and network with other young (and young at heart…we don’t check ID’s!) people working in the arts field in the Triangle.
  • Anyone who needs to expand their network of like-minded people from across the Triangle and across the Triangle region … to share ideas and successses as well as failures and frustrations.
  • Anyone who just wants to meet new people or see old friends over lunch!
