Building digital capacity for the arts
An Arts Council England and BBC Academy Partnership
Storytelling and pitching workshop
Venue: BBC Academy, White City, London
BBC Academy, Salford, Manchester
Times: 10.00am - 4.00pm
Artists and arts organisations are expert at telling stories within their own medium. This workshop aims to support delegates in learning how to translate these skills into storytelling for digital platforms using audio, audio-visual, words or other means.The workshop will also look at pitching your story as a critical part of making sure that the project can happen.
This workshop is aimed at arts organisations and artists from across England who have a developed project or idea that they want to bring to fruition; it is not a brainstorming workshop aimed at dreaming up new ideas. As part of the registration process, you will be asked to confirm that you have a thought-through and viable idea to develop at the workshop and this will form a critical part of the day.
The workshop will be a tightly focussed event with a maximum of eight delegates. It will run from approximately 10am to 4pm. The workshop will aim to:
- introduce delegates to the key elements of good storytelling
- equip delegates with the skills necessary to develop and deliver good stories for digital platforms
- introduce delegates to the techniques required for creating a good verbal pitch
- encourage delegates to build links with each other during the course of the day and to use the relationships developed to support future activity
This workshop is a repeat event taking place on 3 May 2012 (pilot workshop), 3 July 2012 in London and 13 June in Salford, Manchester.
