ZOOM Member Hangout | Data Management for Residencies

Join your colleagues for an informal online discussion. ZOOM Hangouts allow leaders from the AAC network to connect and share ideas around a range of topics related to the residency field.

This month we invite members to participate in:

Tetris Mosaic Rubix: Managing Scheduling and Data in an Artists Community

Staff members of artists communities are, like all of us, awash in data. Each of us is reinventing the wheel as we manage complex residency schedules and seek to create the best data flow systems we can manage with our small staff and limited access to tech consulting. Systems such as SlideRoom and others now handily manage application processes. But these systems are not designed to manage the information flow once artists are accepted. Next come residency dates, arrival and departure information, artist bios, photos, websites and social media information, dietary requirements, project information and photos of projects. How do we solicit this information from artists, route each piece of information to the right place--to our own websites, our email lists, blogs--and ultimately to our digital archives? We invite Alliance members to participate in a series of conversations to share pain points and best practices in managing the flow of information in an artists community.

  • Facilitator: Lori Wood, Artists Residency Program Manager, Lucas Artists Program at Montalvo Arts Center
  • When: Thursday, March 30, 2017, 2:00–2:45pm EST
  • Sign up: If you’d like to participate in this session, please RSVP by email to fpatton@artistcommunities.org. Information for logging in will be emailed to you.

Please note that ZOOM Hangouts are for Alliance members only. To learn more about joining the Alliance network visit: artistcommunities.org/membership
