#Trending – Dani on Paper is our 1st Cover Artist

Unicorns

First up I'd like to thank everyone who has participated with the Symposium event and a special thank you goes out to Vivianne and Greenport Store for sponsoring the event. A lot of this is hybrid since we had to design something versatile enough to deal with COVID-19 and the way it’s impacted society.

  • Visit Greenport Store on 686 College St

Creative Community + Productive Vibes

With our membership growing, we will be able to do more for our community like bringing in gurus to host workshops, putting up book shows more often, creating art installations, and sponsoring members’ showings. Our goal is for members not to have to worry about the payment because we will have our own space where our artists can come in, work, and exhibit.

 

  • Here is a video with exhibit records from two sources. (Unfortunately, there was a technical difficulty with the sound,)

 

The end of Phase 2

We are coming to the end of Phase 2 and have learned a lot while launching Symposium. Some highlights include getting metrics on what works and being able to present a prototype for our merchandising line, thus maturing our merchandising strategy.

Call to Artists: Symposium Book 2

I have been writing down ways to streamline the next event; this includes eliminating Patreon and bringing shops to CreativeUTO. We are also hosting an orientation session where we gather all the artists in one space to walk them through and set the tone. The first session is set for January 28th at 7 pm. Location TBD

We are looking for our $2,000 Cover Artist

We also have plans to make the purse bigger than the last one at $2,000 for the Cover Artist and $500 for the Featured Artists. We are also rewarding the artists who get the most views on our website as the artist of the month; they will receive $100

 

Into Phase 3.

In this phase we're going to work towards a prototype for our first book; Radical Dreams of Kindness & Equity, and here are the artists who made it.

Symposium Phase 2 Starts Sat. Nov. 28th @3pm – GreenPort Store – 686 College ST.

Symposium: Art Anthology

Unicorns!

We are headed into the final leg of our collaborative exhibit.

The purpose of the Symposium event is for us to work around Covid-19 and use our social media platform and intimate physical space to curate an art anthology. The event includes Creative Unicorns of Toronto, alongside Toronto artists, and our guests.

The theme for the event is Radical Dreams of Equity Kindness. We're asking artists to envision a world after COVID-19. Art from the exhibit will be animated on merchandise like mugs, posters, t-shirts, and a quarterly art anthology.

Participating guests get their favorite art through Patreon where they can start as low as $10 per month. Patreon members get VIP access to the exhibit online and at GreenPort Cc on 686 Collge St. Guests also get access to the digital version of the anthology on CreativeUTO.ca. If these guests stay long enough, they’d eventually get the anthology.

CREATIVE COMMUNITY + PRODUCTIVE VIBES

Call For Artists – Build a Profitable Art Business in 6 months. Orientation Starts on July 2nd

Build a Profitable Art Business

Get ongoing business development on Zoom (and eventually in-person) with this 6-month business development program.

Goals

Help 300 artists actualize a profitable business system that complements their creative cycle through design thinking approaches, workshops, and ongoing exhibits.

Creating an incubator

After years of researching how artworks, I have come to realize that we are all different, we live differently, we have different business development needs, different advertising needs and different ways of doing things. 

I used the feedback from my research to design the ABLO and SMARTERai operational philosophies that borrow from proven project management principles. This incubation program is designed to accommodate artists and cater to their different business needs.  

 

However, the Hiscox report notes that online art sales may be benefitting from growth in other e-commerce sectors, as 73% of art buyers said they had bought other products in a similar price range online before buying art online. In 2017, that figure was just 68%. --- Source

ABLO + SMARTER

All projects at CreativeUTO go through 4 phases of development. These phases are alpha, beta, launch, operate. ABLO is part of the SMARTER system; both ABLO and SMARTER are based on project management principles and that will help manage the community and the projects involved.  Projects can cycle back to any of the 4 phases in ABLO. One such project is an online collaborative incubator for artists. We’re in the BETA phase of setting up the online incubator. 

 

BETA phase

We are in the alpha phase of the incubator, looking to gather a community of artists who will get to develop their business side through our workshops; where they will  get proper guidance to prepare a pitch deck for their organization detailing out  their value proposition, target market, sales funnel, and marketing plans.

 

While online art market growth may be plodding, one key trend has emerged: Big spenders—defined by Hiscox as collectors who spend more than $100,000 per year on art—are increasingly comfortable browsing and buying art online. The report notes that these big spenders are the most frequent visitors to online sales platforms, with 50% of them visiting multiple times per week—a big jump from the previous year, when just 38% of big spenders made multiple virtual trips per week to online art vendors. And those increasingly frequent visits are translating to more transactions—47% of big spenders said they bought art online in the last 12 months, up from 30% in the 2018 report. - Source

Personal Branding Unicorn Workshops Facilitated by 5 X Tedx Speaker Bobby Umar

Personal Branding Workshop Facilitated by 5 X Tedx Speaker Bobby Umar

Overview

There are followers, there are leaders, and then there are thought leaders. Thought leadership is a key differentiator between those brands who are driving the conversation forward versus simply engaging in it.
 
It is a type of content marketing where you invest in the experience, talent and passion within you, your business, from your community, to drive the conversation and answer the biggest questions of your target audience on a particular topic.
Your personal brand is your promise to deliver to every person you come in contact with. It is your reputation, integrity and what your audience expects of you, whether they are your team, your tribe or your customers. Building a strong thought leadership personal brand will set you apart, create more opportunities, and help you stay on top of the innovative trends in your industry. Bobby Umar will share the 3 key aspects of a Thought Leadership
Personal Brand and drill deeper into the what and how on one of the key aspects: content creation and generating new ideas.
 
This will be a key aspect to building your business. There will also be a Q & A session where you can ask any question around your business and current state.
 

AGENDA:

  • Why invest in your leadership and personal development
  • What is personal branding and why it is important
  • Why thought leadership
  • How to determine your personal brand
  • How to build thought leadership
  • Deeper dive into content creation, idea generation and leveraging LinkedIn

Call to Artists – The 2nd Video Exhibit is on Friday May 15th

Creation Events

  • After #TAAP6 we decided to move away from tabled events and added an emphasis on 1 keyword, intimacy.
     
  • Artists will use one of 4 foundations (including Creation, Installation, Performance, and or Exhibition) to animate an immersive event. Telling a fairy tale that takes advantage of social media, participating spaces, and the event itself. 

Artists of Toronto

  • C19 has changed our plans to host monthly exhibits and an ongoing incubator at Gallery 1017 but it hasn't altered our initiative to build and promote a creative community of entrepreneurs. Artists of Toronto continue where the Melanin Exhibit left off and this time the platform will be Zoom. #AoT is an online exhibit where artists get to rant, promote their work, talent or service.
     

  • The exhibit gets broadcasted live on our website and Youtube channel (subscribe to our channel)

About the 1st Video Exhibit

The 1st video exhibit was amazing and we plan to take what we learned to expand on it.

The CreativeUTO website had double the traffic (compared to the previous day), the official promotional video was the fastest to 100 views (our channel is still very young) and our room got about 22 guests at its peak. Our 1st video exhibit featuring over 4 hours of art, dance, music, performances, and showcases. 

I want to thank everyone who came out to view the show.
