Massachusetts, Florida: Blogging to Broaden Reach
Since its launch in 2008, the Massachusetts Cultural Council‘s (MCC) ArtSake blog has developed into the hub of MCC’s communications with individual artists, serving as a virtual symposium for sharing the stories of MCC artist fellows and other Massachusetts artists. ArtSake allows MCC to reinforce its connections with individual artists using video and photographs supported by text to highlight artists from a wide variety of disciplines. As blog host, MCC plays the role of convener, curating content designed to broaden the dialogue between artists and provide a myriad of useful, inspiring and career-building content. To learn more, contact MCC Artists Program Coordinator Dan Blask.
The Florida Division of Cultural Affairs (FDCA) is using blogging as an integral part of its ongoing Culture Builds Florida campaign. The campaign’s goal is to grow public understanding about the comprehensive benefits of arts and culture to Florida. The Culture Builds Florida blog showcases artist and creative entrepreneur interviews as well as entries on Floridian cultural history and issues to highlight the vibrant cultural community across the state and the role of the arts in building Florida. For more on the blog and the campaign, contact FDCA Arts Consultant Jennifer Hoesing.
