Introduction to Branding and Marketing 

As an independent artist, you are the machine behind your brand. Social media can make this aspect of being a working artist seem effortless for some, when it isn’t. Information around marketing and branding is inaccessible and many artists are in the dark about where to start. 

In this introductory workshop, musician Rebel Will and PR strategist Uju Nweze-Fadare are going to walk you through creating a marketing plan that reflects who you are as an artist. There is an opportunity to get feedback from the facilitators on your current marketing strategy.
