About ArtFlicks:

Through a series of online workshops, emerging artists including dancers, spoken word artists, poets, musicians, visual artists, combined artists, writers and theatre makers will learn how to elevate their practice to mainstream digital platforms and create original artistic work that appeals to wide digital audiences. Though the commissions are for emerging artists aged 18-24, anybody can attend the workshops.  

Artflicks will deliver online workshops and talks from experts including artist filmmakers, directors, social media producers and digital marketeers. The workshops will be followed by a unique commissioning opportunity with Rural Media  to make short creative content, distributed through the newly created Artflicks social channels including TikTok, YouTube and Instagram.

The first workshop took place online, Monday 27th November 6pm. Attendees were able to register their interest, learn more about the workshop experts booked in and the commissioning opportunities available. There was a Q&A, where attendees were able to talk directly to Rural Media about the project.

We heard from:

  • Lisle Turner – Theatre to Digital
  • Rachel Lambert – Literature to Digital
  • Sima Gonsai – Dance to Digital
  • Chris Hyde (1990’s Chris) – Spoken Word to Digital
  • Eve Sherlock – TikTok
  • Meghan Dyer - Catch 22
