ONpaper: Social media for the independent contemporary music scene

ONpaper. Digital workshop series by inm / field notes berlin & ON Cologne

Social media work is more important than ever for the independent scene. Unfortunately, however, its potential is often not yet ideally utilized by its actors. The workshop with Fillipp Vingerhoets will give a short overview of the basics and available tools, present concrete possibilities of analysis and evaluation, show the benefits of different social networks with regard to artists of the independent scene of experimental and contemporary music and support the participants in developing strong narratives within the structures of these networks.

  • Basics & Tools
  • Development of narratives
  • Evaluation

Following the workshop, participants* can take advantage of a free (personal) consultation session based on their current social media work, either developing existing profiles or even creating new ones together with the speaker.

About ONpaper

In this year's online workshop series ONpaper, which we are organizing again together with ON Cologne, experts will teach basic skills for working in the independent scene.

Under the heading "Application Fitness" we will get you ready for project funding in the spring. In addition to classic workshops with introductions to the funding landscapes in Berlin and Cologne, application writing or accounting, this year we are exploring new formats such as Meet the Jury, informal get-togethers on funding or sessions for writing applications together.

Although the independent scene defines itself in part precisely by breaking away from hierarchical ways of working that widely encourage the abuse of power and racism, it is not exempt from structural exclusions either. On the contrary, it lacks diverse perspectives and non-normative bodies, attitudes, narratives, and aesthetics. With workshops on anti-racism and diversity development, we would like to accompany the scene on the process of opening up, sensitize for blind spots and facilitate access to the scene for marginalized persons with empowerment offers.

A third module on press and public relations, audience development, profile building and management will provide concrete assistance in the development and implementation of projects.

The workshop series will be continued after the summer break. We will announce the program in the course of the next few months. Please feel free to contact us with any suggestions or proposals.

Smartphone and access to Facebook & Instagram are desired for participation in the workshop.
