This month we’re thrilled to announce that the team behind the Coventry Biennial (taking place on 4th October – 24th November) will be joining us as special guests for #ArtChatCov.
Join us for a live Q&A on Twitter on Wednesday 25th September 8-9pm – just over a week before the Biennial opens, and get involved in the conversation. See what they have planned over the coming weeks, and chat to Coventry Biennial Director Ryan Hughes.
How to get involved
Simply log into Twitter between 8-9pm on Wed 25th September, follow the hashtag #ArtChatCov and join the conversation (making sure you add the hashtag to your tweets!).
This month we will be running an extra special Tweet Chat to mark our first #ArtChatCov of 2019! Instead of the usual Wednesday, this month’s will be Thursday 31st January, 7-9pm.
#ArtChatCov will be a two-hour special. During the second hour, Chloe of Curating Coventry will be going live on BBC Coventry and Warwickshire radio to give a live update of the Tweet Chat. This will be great chance for those who are not on Twitter to gain an insight into what goes on during #ArtChatCov. Then those who join the Tweet Chat will have the chance to hear about themselves live on BBC radio!
We’re planning on running the Tweet Chat a little like this…
7-7:30pm – #ArtChatCov will kick off with a live Q & A with Adam from the Blue Door Gallery – find out more about Coventry’s newest art gallery and join the conversation.
Following this from 7:30pm – 9pm – we’ll run our usual monthly networking session. Share with us your latest projects, any news and updates on what’s coming up, plus forthcoming events and exhibitions.
Then from approximately 8:40pm Chloe will be live on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire “The Culture Club” radio show giving a live update from the TweetChat.
You can tune in online here.
Hope you can join us on the night!
So if you have any forthcoming events/exhibitions or want to share what you are working on, be sure to follow #ArtChatCov between 7-9pm on the night to join the conversation!
(We will go back to running #ArtChatCov on a Wednesday night from February onwards.)
Find out more about #ArtChatCov here.
#ArtChatCov is a monthly networking Tweet Chat for artists and art lovers on Twitter, in and around Coventry. It is the perfect opportunity to chat with like-minded individuals, and discuss visual arts activities happening in and around the city, and hear the latest news and updates from the city’s art organisations.
If you are an artist or part of an art organisation, this is a great platform for you to promote what you do, and give others the chance to engage with your work. We want to build a supportive community, where people can offer each other advice and utilise the power of social media to help increase exposure for the city’s creative community.
So whether you are an artist, art organisation or simply someone who enjoys exploring the diverse visual arts scene that the city has to offer – everyone is welcome!
How do I get involved?
- Search #ArtChatCov on Twitter between 8-9pm on the last Wednesday of every month (make sure that the menu at the top of your screen is set on “Latest”)
- To join the conversation always use #ArtChatCov in your tweets – so either tweet as you normally would using this hashtag, or “reply” to a tweet in the conversation using #ArtChatCov in the reply
We will “retweet” any posts where people are promoting themselves, and events to help increase their exposure.
We also like to encourage fellow tweeters to engage with others in the conversation, and support each other by “liking” and “retweeting” each other’s content when they can.
So on the last Wednesday of every month, set yourself a reminder, put your feet up, grab a cuppa and come and join us for #ArtChatCov!
