Use GO to build an artist network. Calling all Pratt alumni!
A few days ago, GO HQ was contacted by a few awesome graduates of Pratt who are participating as registered artists in GO. These artists look forward to representing Pratt on open studio weekend, and they know they’re not alone. By connecting with other Pratt graduates who are also opening their studios for GO, they hope to activate the larger alumni network. Plus, they know that as a group, they can cultivate media attention that might be more difficult to solicit as individual artists.
We love this strategy! When individual artists connect, they leverage the relationships and resources of the whole crew. We encourage all participating artists to think broadly and generously about their networks. Use open studio weekend as an opportunity to strengthen your professional practice by making new links and finding new audiences.
And if you’re an alumnus of Pratt who’s also a participating artist in GO (and you’d like to link up with others), please contact our floating neighborhood coordinator, so she can put you in touch: firstname.lastname@example.org.
