Students need something that approaches art with serious intent to further develop their talents, yet allows room for creativity, individual expression, and interaction with others. This online
event provided artistic youth with an opportunity to perform, display, and observe art in a collaborative environment.
PROMO FOR FUNDING
Funding is a crucial first-step to event planning.
My event fell under the Texas State Service-Learning Program, making all donation tax deductible.
I utilized this as a way to entice people to donate.
To broaden my outreach, I used a variety of platforms, primarily those I was familiar with, in the hope of recruiting more participants.
With the escalation of the COVD-19 pandemic and lockdown mandates, I re-imagined the event into an online platform that lended itself to a broader student population.
SOCIAL MEDIA CAMPAIGN
I focused primarily on Instagram because it is the most used social media platform for teens, my target audience.
This event was designed to enhance adolescents’ levels of human connection, collaboration, artistic career exploration, academic success and well-being. The arts provide an outlet for therapeutic, collaborative, and expressive communication, especially during times of stress like the current pandemic.
