Our team is looking forward to tonight's webinar, all about how indie artists and small cultural organizations can build effective relationships with the media. I didn't learn any of this in a classroom: it comes from 15+ years of being a journalist myself and dealing directly with artists who want media coverage, plus five years at the helm of BSR. The info and PR tips I'll be sharing are applicable to a wide range of artistic pursuits, from crafty small businesses to solo performers to visual artists promoting gallery shows. PR folks who want to know BSR better are welcome, too -- we see you registering! And this session is sure to interest to anyone who wants a backstage look at arts journalism.
Free tickets are sold out, but there's still time to join us for a suggested $25 donation to BSR (if this is a hardship, give the amount that works for you). Come learn with us while directly supporting our journalists! RSVP now.
That's not our only upcoming meetup! Next Wednesday (December 20 at 6pm) we're gathering on Zoom for our BSR Year-End Recommend, where we swap our faves from 2023: what books, movies, TV shows, podcasts, or other media kept you going this year? This is always an intimate and freewheeling discussion that leaves everyone with tons of great recommendations. RSVP here.
And of course, don't miss this week's stories, a lively mix of theater, music, dance, and an exhibition that is a must-see for Philly concert-lovers. We have a look at horror movies, too, from someone who used to hate them, but recently changed her mind.
Hope to see you tonight, or in our Zoom meetup next week!
