"Look who's talking" on social media and the arts

Hey there,

Being the first post, I thought it appropriate to jump right in to a recent event I attended which is the epitome of why I wanted to start this blog.

A little over a week ago, TheatreWashington, through their greenRoom program, teamed up with Social Media Club DC (SMCDC) to co-host an event at Busboys & Poets, "Look Who’s Talking - Social Media, Theatre, and the Arts in Washington".
As Washington celebrates its extraordinary arts and cultural offerings during the month-long Art4All DC celebration, theatreWashington and the Social Media Club of DC will combine forces for an evening about loving and living with social media - and the leading role it now plays in theatre and arts communities. 
This event was the brain child of one of DC's arts ambassadors on Social Media, Jason McCool, and was the result of a long-term goal of working with SMCDC to move the conversation forward on SM and the arts.

The tag line of SMCDC and Social Media Club, in general? "If you get it, share it".

And so I put this event forward to see if anyone else has participated in similar events regarding the arts in general, their specific discipline/craft, or any other relevant intersection.

If you've attended any, please share. And definitely leave a comment if your local Social Media Club chapter has partnered with arts orgs in your area to help facilitate these kinds of conversations and share resources.

In the meantime, I look forward to helping you (and myself) keep track of the intersection between Social Media and the Arts,
