Harnessing social media with your dance practice

11:00–12:30 on 06.01.22

Thursday 6 January, 11 - 12.30pm

Facilitated by Sophie Amono, Online via Zoom

Keeping a profile on social media can often feel like yet another pressure and administrative task to be completed. This workshop is to help you take a fresh approach to this in 2022, and Sophie will explore creative strategies for harnessing social media to support and enable your dance practice. She will encourage participants to consider  how your social media presence communicates your practice and approaches to using this bringing audiences into dialogue with your work.

We have 8 places in the workshop for Work Room members, that come with a 1-2-1 follow-up surgery online with Sophie on Thursday afternoon & Friday 7 January to access bespoke feedback and advice, along with a bursary of £75 for you to spend time on actioning your social media plans. To book, please email sara@theworkroom.org.uk, providing links to your current social media profiles. Places will be allocated on first-come basis. 

Sophie is the founder of  communications agency Studio Tuku  (www.studiotuku.com); a black owned, woman led creative studio that produces social media campaigns for brands across the UK and Europe. Over the last ten years her career has seen her work with some of biggest brands in contemporary communications including Dazed Digital, Bulletproof, The Times, and NOT JUST A LABEL. Her path to agency ownership was born out a desire to fill the gap she saw in ethnic minority and female leadership within the creative industries – a path which has seen her now go on to grow a team of over 100 members of staff and influencers – and where her personal efforts are now focused on advocacy work with underrepresented groups. Sophie is also on the Creative Scotland Equalities, Diversity & Inclusion Advisory Group with the vision to help drive impactful change for underrepresented creatives across Scotland, with a keen focus on women and ethnic minorities within the media, digital and technology industry.
