I’ve recently learned of Etsy-sponsored artist networking events that have started in Portland, expanded to Baltimore and now San Francisco. All following the model of “speed dating” this unique event is where art and networking directly collide. Artists with retailers and galleries join together and meet for 2 minutes only. I thought this was a brilliant concept to help bridge the arts community together in collaboration with retailers. It’s a win-win for all parties. I think every city should do this!
If you only had 2 minutes to talk about your work — what would you say? Would you discuss your process, talk about your inspirations, your goals? As an artist, do you have your elevator pitch ready?
How would you make your impression and stand out amongst all of the other artists? Can you sum up your art or craft in one sentence even?
