Barrie Arts and Culture Council prepares launch of online arts directory
Attention artists and arts organizations:
The Barrie Arts and Culture Council (BACC) is beta testing the Barrie Arts Network – a new online database that will act as a directory for arts and culture in Barrie.
We’d like your feedback to help us refine the site. Your participation will help ensure the site has what you need as an artist / arts organization to effectively communicate who you are and what you do.
After creating your profile, we ask that you send us any suggestions about the site itself, its functionality and ways to streamline and refine the site.
This will help ensure the site is working smoothly before our official public launch scheduled for May 2011.
Adding your profile to the network is simple:
- Go to http://barriearts.ca/ and click Register to create an account
- Complete the application form
- Input bio and contact information
- Upload work samples
- Review and approve application
- Send us your thoughts, questions and suggestions.
- Help us spread the word – invite others to join!
Please note that you may register as both an Artist and an Organization.
The primary contact for Organization should register the organization.
You can also visit the Frequently Asked Questions page: http://barriearts.ca/faq
The Network is not an events listing site … yet.
This first phase, will help us to gather our community of artists and arts organization in one virtual space. With further funding, the second phase of this project is planned to include an events calendar.
This online database will also enable us to more readily create traditional marketing pieces such as a printed directory.
Thank you for taking the time to help our community.
