Instagram Strategies for Artists During COVID-19

Keep your art business strong with an updated Instagram strategy. 

It can feel weird to post something that is unrelated to COVID-19 or, more currently, social injustice right now. But, this doesn’t mean you have to completely stop sharing parts of your work and it doesn’t mean you should go silent. Consider changing up your usual social media posts to address issues and share resources and posts. Adjust your messaging, but don’t go silent. Click here for a few ways that you can use your Instagram to engage with your audience right now.

Complete Guide to 2020 Artist Grants and Opportunities

There are endless opportunities for artists who know where to look. 

Artwork Archive scoured the internet and compiled the best opportunities for 2020—so you only have to look in one place. 

Each year they send their team on a mission to find the best opportunities, artist grants, and calls-for-entry for artists. From that, they created a list of the top international open calls, residencies, fellowships, and awards that they believe will benefit artists during the upcoming year.

The complete list is broken down into four categories: grants, residencies, calls-for-entry, and opportunity sites.
