Arts Reporter Julie MacLellan from The Record and Burnaby Now is looking for artists to fill out a small Questionnaire to help elevate our public profiles.
This is really a general message for the New West Artists group, as I am looking for interesting folks from the local arts community who might like to take part in a new feature we’re starting with The Record and Burnaby NOW.
We are starting a new series of mini-profiles, “Fill in the Blanks with …” and talking to folks in the arts communities of New Westminster and Burnaby. I figured there are likely all sorts of interesting artists in your group who deserve to have some press and who might like a chance to raise their profile in the community a little bit, and tell readers about themselves.
Basically, what it involves is someone filling out a mini questionnaire (I’ll attach a PDF and append in the body of the message below) and then arranging to have a photo to go with the profile – either they can contribute one, if they have a high-quality, high-resolution shot (full-person shot, as opposed to just headshot) that they think would be appropriate, or we could have a photographer meet them for a shot at mutual convenience.
Let me know if any of your members are interested in taking part! (The questions may be interpreted as liberally as you see fit. There’s no right or wrong, and it’s all intended to be pretty light-hearted … unless of course you prefer to get serious, which is just fine too.) It could provide an opportunity to promote the New West Artists group, and also to bring note to any upcoming shows, exhibitions, workshops, projects, etc. that might deserve some press!
I attach the PDF and the questions below. They can be emailed back or even done by old-fashioned pen-and-paper-and-snail-mail if folks prefer.
No hard deadline, but whenever people can get back to me is great. (Even if just to let me know yay or nay.)
We’ve switch our web hosting, so hopefully you should notice it running a bit quicker (and not stalling in the evening).
Thanks for your patience!
