The Arts Council England pair up with ‘The Great Escape’ this May bringing us ‘DIY’ in the spotlight. It’s all about giving those raw talents in the arts, music and managerial industry an opportunity to get their status recognised and a foot in the industry ladder. Basically how new artists can take control of their own careers by throwing this awesomely unconventional convention.
Sessions will provide ideas, practical advice, inspirational stories and tips of the trade for creatives and entrepreneurs who are looking to self-release their won work. The programme also offers…
…a focus on how these talented people can get started, what they need to do, logistical, legal information and advice.
…social media optimisation tips, gigging as a marketing platform and press approaches.
…inside information from four of the best UK indie music labels on how to set-up and keep up an independent record label.
…a unique and useful ‘pitch party’ showcasing the digital tools available for music artists, promotion ideas and content on how to engage fans, with distribution details on selling tickets, merchandise and music.
