MusicNSW is excited to announce a special in-person event hosted by our Regional Music Officers – a Social Media Masterclass followed by a local industry networking Meet’n’Greet. Join us and learn how to get your online profile humming, and then meet some of the legends who make up your local scene irl (that’s social media for “in real life” ).
The night will consist of two parts. First will be April’s Sound Advice Social Media Masterclass streamed live to the venue. Mardi Caught, former GM of Warner Frontline Marketing and founder of The Annex, will take you through the “dos” and “most definitely do nots” of optimising your social media game, growing your audience and deepening engagement.
Before opening the floor to questions from you, Mardi will be joined in conversation by a prominent social media savvy artist to discuss how it works in practice – details to come. This part of the session will be facilitated by Marketing and Communications Coordinator at Australia Council for the Arts Samantha Groth.
Following this livestream, Regional Music Officer for the Southern Tablelands region Michael Simic will host a meet ‘n’ greet session, giving you the opportunity to make new connections within your local industry or build on relationships established at previous events. You will also have the opportunity to chat one-on-one with special guests Adam Stokeld (Station Manager, Highland FM 107.1) and Rose Marin (Executive Director, Southern Tablelands Arts NSW).
Spots are limited so register now!
