OPPORTUNITIES FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
Proyecto ´ace is pleased to announce a new online program that will provide quality professional development and networking for artists. Presented by experts in the field, the WebinarTs will allow you to organize your free time and to learn directly from your desktop. We will soon begin this new activity with a series of events that will be taught by the members of ’ace, and in the future, special guests will attend the meetings.
Meanwhile, pre-register for the first WebinarTs of the year:
WHAT ARE THE ACE’s WEBINARTS?
Strictly speaking, a webinar (web-based seminar) is a conference, critic, seminar, workshop presented via Internet, in which you can participate by accessing the web browser on your computer.
Based on this concept, ´ace’s WebinarTs are new protocols of working and learning on-line that we are implementing in order to provide professional development online and to generate connections between the participant artists.
Through the creative use of digital tools provided by the Webinars, Webcasts and communications via Skype, ´ace has made a synthesis called WebinarTs!. By these means, activities such portfolio reviews, some workshops and lectures that take place in ‘ace will be available to interested artists, transferring knowledge regardless of a physical location.
ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF THE WEBINARTS
When we founded Fusionarte in the year 2008 -an online community of Spanish speaking artists and curators (which today reaches 2,500 members)- we thought to use the feature advantages of Web 2.0, a term that is associated with web applications that facilitate information sharing and the creation of virtual communities.
On many occasions, Fusinarte´s members have emailed us asking to join ´ace’s activities (portfolio reviews, workshops, lectures) virtually. This idea fascinated us from the beginning and today we are able to make it happen.
