IntrepidArts is a portal, an aggregator, a reporter, not a qualified critic but an enthusiastic promoter, your eyes on the scene, sometimes a curator -- for visual arts with a healthy dose of performing and literary arts thrown in. Seems a bit unfocused? Probably so. Just sit back and enjoy the ride.
Ken Hall’s interaction with the arts community includes a multi-year stint as on-air auctioneer for the WKNO TV Art Auction and work with various arts organization and festivals. At present he produces a monthly column about upcoming visual & performing arts events for 4Memphis Magazine, a monthly enews with similar listings, and joins Earle Farrell on the air for a weekly segment called Art Beat covering arts events and interviewing artists and arts organization representatives.
Big ones, small ones, events all kinds
Since before cell phone or personal computers, I have worked on conferences, trade shows, festivals, parades, holiday events...and backyard birthday parties. From a an event for a few thousand to an event for a carload, this is good basic logistics and marketing grounded in experience not just a bunch of Pinterest browsing!
With career experience ranging from Vice President of Marketing & Communications for the Memphis Chamber to Marketing Manager for Performa's Beale Street, from Executive Director of Hands on Memphis to Director of The Cotton Museum, I've had all the curveballs thrown my way. Some 30 years in nonprofit management and organizational communication might offer some perspective on what you are about to tackle. Marketing campaign, community engagement planning, speech writing, you name it -- call me and we'll do more than commiserate, we'll chart a path to victory!
